New GeoLocationProvider class was added with geolocation methods that make it easier to detect and display a user’s location on the map. This feature leverages the W3C Geolocation API specification and is supported on browsers that have support for it.
Some of our Web applications often require displaying a geographic data, so Bing Maps is a good option to display this information. This version of Bing maps support customizations for different sections of the map, like the pushpins and infoboxes.
After a quick overview on the new features in the Bing Maps AJAX Control v7 as well as a look at loading the map and displaying localized labels we are now moving on to the various options to add your own data. As before we will compare version 6.3 and version 7 and you will find live examples with source code on my Windows Azure site.
