The demo integrates Microsoft's Virtual Earth Web Service and API to embed a map into a PHP application. Web site users can add their location to the map and the map displays a pin for every user location stored in the database.
This project is provided as a kit. The solution package which can be downloaded from this site includes the code needed to embed a Virtual Earth map in a PHP web page. The map displays a pin for each location stored in the database and a form collects web site visitor locations. Step by step instructions are included to help you set up a database and appropriate table to store user submitted locations. Separate instructions are provided for SQL Express 2005/2008 and MySQL users.
