Join us for an evening in Bracknell where our guest speaker Johannes Kebeck will be giving a presentation on Microsoft Virtual Earth.
Since the so called ‘Earth Viewers’ and ‘Virtual Globes’ entered the market in 2005, interest in location-enabled applications has exploded. From mash-ups and community websites the wave swapped quickly over to more business relevant applications.
Today you find Virtual Earth in locator-type applications, fleet- or asset-management, business intelligence and even risk or disaster management applications across all industries.
The presentation will: * Introduce Microsoft Virtual Earth and its background; * Give examples of various implementations; * Demonstrate combinations with other products and services such as Windows Azure or SQL Server 2008. * Make a deep technical dive on some specific features
