Drawing Maps with Visual Basic (Scott Wisniewski)

If you find yourself looking for something to do with your awesome new copy of Visual Studio 2008, you should check out the December 2007 edition of MSDN magazine. It features an article, written by me, that provides a walk through on how to visualize data on a map using VB 9, WPF and LINQ.

To give you a sneak preview of what the app described in the article does, I’ve included a screen shot below:




Over my next several posts I plan on expanding on the article by showing how you can extend the application by adding new functionality to it. For now, I will give you some time to read through the article, download the code sample, and play around with the app. In my next post I will show how you can make the application multithreaded while still taking full advantage of WPF data binding.
