Some might think this is a long overdue piece of functionality, but at long last, I’ve got a working sample of integrating WorldMaps and Virtual Earth. I demonstrated how this works in a recent MSDN Roadshow Chad and I completed recently in Charlotte.
To check out how this works, you can see my modified stats page here:
If you’re using WorldMaps, just point to worldmapv2.aspx instead of worldmap.aspx for the reporting page. Eventually I’ll roll the functionality back into the original version.
Near the top of the page, there’s a Virtual Earth link that will display this version of the map. Click this link, and when the Virtual Earth version loads, you can browse and zoom the map interactively.
