Question: How to send gps Cord from WP7 to a Bing Map!

Posted 24 March 2012 - 02:40 PM

Hey fellow Programmers!
My scenario is that I'm using the Bing Map API to create a map with Push-pins on the server side. And I already have created an application on the WP7 working successfully to give the user the GPS coordinates.

Now: The Question , is there any way that I can Post these coordinates from the WP7 to be displayed on the Bing Map on the Server Side ?
I mean to send it through a web-service to the Bing Map, or some-other way ?

Thanks!

Well, no, you can't do what you are describing. However, you could think about it differently. Maybe think about storing the GPS data on the server(file/database/etc.), then have the map retrieve the data.

Can you give an example of that scenario ? I mean the way I send it to the database ? and about the retrieval I might have something in mind!

Since I didn't know how to manage this! but found another way! I send the Lat and Lon using a WCF service, later trigger a method to talk to the xml and put the pushpin! :smartass:

Looks like you just did it. From your description, you send lat and long coordinates to the WCF service, the service writes an XML file, and the map reads the XML file to show the pushpin. If that description is correct, you were able to do exactly what I suggested.
