  • Virtual Earth Silverlight Control Part 3: Locating Best Buy Stores

    Steve Strong has published his latest Silverlight/Virtual Earth episode and this time he's using the BestBuy Remix service.

    I was searching the web for sources of Lat/Long data I could mash-up to in a Virtual Earth application and I ran across Best Buy ReMix. The API to collect store location information was easy to use and returned Lat/Long info, so I integrated it into the application.

    Steve Strong has created a method to report the current location on the Virtual Earth Silverlight control.

    I have decided to create a separate class of objects to mark my current location. I did this mainly because I wanted to use a different symbol to mark myself on the map -- like a "You Are Here" marker. I have extended this class to collect a time stamp, and this -- in combination with persistence -- can be used to track my movements.

    Steve Strong discusses the application that he used during his travel around the country and how he profits by Silverlight and the Virtual Earth module.

    One of the goals of the trip was to fieldtest technology, including the Virtual Earth Silverlight control. You can see the MIX09 presentation here at

    So you might be thinking, why not just do this from home? I believe that you can see the issues more clearly if you put yourself into the situations in which you expect the software to be used. After all, Pixar animators traveled to South America as inspiration for the movie "UP", and traveled along Route 66 in preparation for the movie "Cars".

    Corey Schuman thinks that one of the components that didn’t get enough attention at the MIX09 was the Virtual Earth Silverlight Control.

    So far, I’m very impressed on how fast the control responses and pulls data.  Do keep in mind when you’re using the control, the DLL is just under half a meg.  So you may want to consider pulling this dll in dynamically or having it be a shared library.
