Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Interactive web maps generated by MapPoint-Microsoft's popular mapping technology are crucial for businesses in a number of fields, including real estate, package delivery, and commercial air travel. In a word, MapPoint provides businesses with "location." Specifically, it provides an integrated set of products, servers, and services to enable a business to track the precise location of remote assets, thereby reducing operational costs and improving productivity. Whether the asset is a truck, a taxi, or even a field rep, MapPoint can tell you exactly where it is at any time.

Programming MapPoint in .NET from O'Reilly shows you how to use MapPoint to build custom applications for the desktop, the web, and mobile devices. The book also explains how to analyze and share data generated from a wide range of maps, including those that show demographic trends, population density, and sales potential. Chandu Thota, one of Microsoft's main MapPoint developers and the book's author, has organized the material into four major sections, each dedicated to a different MapPoint technology:

  • MapPoint 2004 - calculating routes, rendering data maps, integrating with Global Positioning System (GPS) for obtaining real-time location
  • MapPoint Web Service - techniques for finding points of interest, creating applications using the Find APIs and Route APIs, rendering LineDrive maps and polygons
  • MapPoint Location Server - deployment scenarios, getting real-time location using mobile phones, managing contacts and privacy settings
  • MSN Virtual Earth - the basics of programming with new MSN Virtual Earth APIs

The book provides a jumpstart for working with these technologies, including in-depth discussions about the core concepts and sample code provided in C#. It's ideal for anyone who wants to develop locations-based applications with MapPoint technologies.

The next time you follow online directions to the airport, you can chalk up an assist to MapPoint's state-of-the-art interactive mapping abilities. Better yet, you'll know how to create that same type of map yourself.

Book News Annotation:

This description of Microsoft's MapPoint program with .NET demonstrates its programming, Web Service, Location Server, and MSN Visual Earth, especially generating maps, using Active X control, creating driving directions, connecting to a GPS device, integrating data, and using Find, Route, and Render APIs. Also explained are real-time locations using mobile phones, managing data on MapPoint's customer services site, working with polygons, and implementing a proximity search using SQL server. There is no bibliography. Thota works for Microsoft.

Synopsis:

The author demonstrates to developers how to use the web service to build custom applications with interactive mapping abilities for the desktop, the Web, and for mobile devices.

Synopsis:

Location-determining web services like MapQuest have been available for years: Type in an address and up pops a map to get you there. Recently, though, web applications such as Microsoft's MapPoint have taken mapping services to another level. Application developers can now program MapPoint functions into a business system, so that companies can easily locate assets such as delivery trucks, taxis, or field representatives. Or, so they can create and share maps based on existing geographic data.

Programming MapPoint in .NET gives developers a head start on Microsoft's emerging web mapping technology by showing them practical ways to embed MapPoint functionality into custom applications for the desktop, the Web, and mobile devices. Written by Microsoft's point man on MapPoint, this practical book offers the most thorough treatment of the service.
