WEBCAST RECORDING: Adding Mapping Capabilities to your Applications with Virtual Earth and ASP.NET AJAX

First, let me apologize since I promised to make this recording available almost two months ago.  I was trying to get the recording uploaded to the same Live Meeting servers as my other webcasts.  Needless to say, I had some challenges.  I decided to upload it to Silverlight Streaming.  I had to split the presentation into two files since this is a 90 minute presentation and Silverlight Streaming has file size limits.

In this presentation, I show you the fundamentals of the Virtual Earth Map Control 6.1 using JavaScript.  Then, I show how you can use ASP.NET AJAX and the Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) to make building Virtual Earth solutions easier.  Finally, I show you how you can host Virtual Earth in a desktop application.

So what’s the benefit of this recording?  First, it is much higher quality than the Live Meeting recording since I used Camtasia Studio.  Second, the content is updated to use the Virtual Earth Map Control 6.1 and the Virtual Earth JavaScript Intellisense Helper.  Finally, since it’s hosted using Silverlight Streaming, you don’t have to register to view it. 

Here are some download links for the webcast:

The sample demonstrating hosting Virtual Earth in a Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) is old.  I have an updated sample.  Details about the updated sample are available at http://blogs.msdn.com/devkeydet/archive/2008/06/24/wpf-and-virtual-earth-revisited.aspx.  You can also watch a screencast about the updated sample at https://channel9.msdn.com/posts/keydet/Using-Virtual-Earth-in-a-WPF-Application/
