Get some Deep Zoomable Soul in your Virtual Earth Solution..


Ok, I had way to much fun with that title. SoulSolutions which is based out of my home town, Brisbane Australia has put together a remarkable Deep Zoom + Virtual Earth demo via the Silverlight 2 (b2).

He's even showing you how via code!

JohnWhat's remarkable about this is simply how fast John was able to go from the b2 announcement to the end solution, and I can say that he didn't have access to the bits early (not that I know of anyway). This is a great demonstration of Deep Zoom in the wild and with this capability I'm really excited and curious to see how folks in the business streams take this and run with it.

Given I am hunting for a house now here in Seattle, I'm hoping someone in the real estate sector will pick this up and do some magic. Think about it, first move advantage is awaiting you!...

Well done John!

(Note: John is an MVP in the Virtual Earth space and is a wizard, but I still think he's wife, Bronwen (GeekGirls Fame) is smarter.. sorry John..heheh).

Deep Zoom.. GO DEEEEPER!..

    Its cool stuff and such little code, but many more interesting things to come from the community around this. Stay tuned.
