Tonight is the night of the big mashup camp for all you late night campers. It will be @ The Venetian in the Tuscana Room 3701 (3rd Floor) from 8P – 2A. For those of you unlucky enough to not be here, fear not. You can have access to the Virtual Earth Version 5 lab I wrote for MIX. I’ve pasted it below for your coding pleasure. It’s fairly simple, but highlights the core changes in Version 5 around the VEShape Class and additional GeoRSS support (now supporting Lines and Polygons). Enjoy!

The Virtual Earth platform is Microsoft’s next generation mapping and location service. The Virtual Earth platform enables you to deliver innovative solutions and breakthrough customer experiences. Microsoft Virtual Earth maps become useful when you can add to the map data that is important to you. At the completion of this exercise you will understand how to use the VEShape and ImportShapeLayerData Classes to add your custom point, linear and polygonal data to a Virtual Earth map. The following exercises will illustrate two ways of achieving this with Version 5 of the Virtual Earth Map Control.
