Bing Maps Integrated With ASP.NET Pivot Grid – v2010 vol 1

Check out this slick demo which shows how sales data from the ASPxPivotGrid is plotted and displayed using the maps service.

The Bing Maps service provides you the capability to plot data geographically on a map. For example, this ASPxPivotGrid shows the quantity of products sold per country:

ASPxPivotGrid - Grid

We can plot this data on to a map because the Bing maps services provides developers with a JavaScript API to display maps, locate countries and businesses and create pushpin indicators!

Now, we can better visualize the data on a map. Notice that the pushpin indicators also contain the specific quantities sold per country:

ASPxPivotGrid - Map 2

This type of integration is possible because the ASPxPivotGrid provides a great set of client-side events and functionality. This demo and full source code will be provided in the next major DXperience release, v2010 vol 1.

Drop me a line below if you’re already thinking of interesting ways to incorporate maps with your DevExpress ASP.NET controls?

Very nice. We are working on an XAF application that stores statistics from field equipment. We would like to plot the location of each peice of equipment on a map. Will something like this be possible in an XAF application?

Thanks @Ray!

@Richard, Thanks and Gary Short is going to see about creating a sample to show XAF and Bing Maps integration. Keep an eye on his blog please:

Very nice I can think of a few uses for that in my apps. A sample would be helpful.

Hopefully I can localize the map more e.g. instead of numbers per country numbers per postcode area in the UK (first part of post code indicates area).

@Cesar, Thanks!

@Peter, a demo with full source code will be in the next DXperience v2010.1 release. Actually, that demo will also be available online, once v2010.1 is released. :)

Working for many clients in the Logistics industry I've done a lot of work interfacing with various mapping tools (client based), and on board data capture devices - looks like it might be time to refresh my libraries of routines....

Great, just in time when am releasing enterprise product that allows multi-country features. Now this feature integration will take the product to a level that even I didn't perceive before. Awesome, thanks a lot :)
