Marc Schweigert is trying to replace me as the Virtual Earth Technical Evangelist. I kid, I kid! He has bigger fish to fry, but his passion for geospatial solutions is impressive to say the least. He’s just put out ANOTHER TWO how-to videos about Microsoft Virtual Earth. These videos are only the beginning of showing the power of SQL Server and Virtual Earth coming together to bring simple interfaces into geographic information systems. Not to mention extensible solutions for building interfaces into SharePoint, Silverlight (when available) and WPF (when available)!
Saving Virtual Earth Polygons to SQL Server 2008: In this screencast, I show you how to draw a polygon on a Virtual Earth map and save it using ASP.NET AJAX, Windows Communication Foundation (WCF), LINQ to SQL, and the new geography data type in SQL Server 2008.
Rendering Polygons from SQL Server 2008 on Virtual Earth: In this screencast, I build off of the concepts shown in my previous screencast and show you how to render a polygon on a Virtual Earth map using REST, Windows Communication Foundation (WCF), LINQ to SQL, and the new geography data type in SQL Server 2008.
Are you ready for it? The wave of change is coming. Get your board and ride it; or, wash up on the shore.
