The last couple months at work, I've been working a lot on a new real estate mapping product that was launched last week called eNavigator (Try out eNavigator here). It utilizes AJAX and the Microsoft Virtual Earth v1 Commercial control and supports IE and Firefox. The coolest feature is the Interactive Map search that allows you to click and drag the map around to find that home of your dreams.
Something I started working with tonight is the new Virtual Earth v3 control that Microsoft released on May 23rd. Some of the new features include Geocoding, Driving Directions and built-in Pushpins and Popups.
Error: 'footer' is undefined*
What's this "footer" it's looking for? I don't see it in the documentation; the error even occurs on the Virtual Earth Interactive SDK site. It's been a couple days already; I wonder how long it will take for them to fix it.
More Info on Virtual Earth:
Another thing I've been working with lately is WebParts. They are actually quite easy to use. I especially like how easy it is to use the Import/Export feature of saving/loading a WebPart XML file. They guys on the ASP.NET team did a great job with this feature set.
I've found there really aren't very many articles or code examples out there on using Virtual Earth. So, I plan on blogging more about Virtual Earth in the next few months. Tonight, I actually started working on an ASP.NET Virtual Earth v3 library that I plan on releasing once I get it far enough along. So, look for it's release in the coming weeks.
Enough rambling for now, I should probably get back to programming or go to bed.
