PietschSoft.VE3 is now on CodePlex

I am still hosting the demo site but I have moved the project into CodePlex. The CodePlex site offers a Discussion board (forums) and Issue Tracker.

I hope this will clear up any licensing questions regarding the use of this control. PietschSoft.VE3 - ASP.NET Virtual Earth Map Control
