Webservice? Where?

Aug 17, 2009 at 8:30 AM


The project description says "The demo integrates Microsoft's Virtual Earth Web Service and API" but I cannot see any code relating to the Virtual Earth Soap webservice?

Other than that it looks great thanks for helping out the php community

Am I missing something? The only PHP code I see is to connect to a database and show some pins. Is their code for using the web service for GeoCoding, routing, static maps etc?

This toolkit is to show the integration of JavaScript API of Virtual Earth with PHP application.

There are functions available in JavaScript to use GeoCoding, routing and static maps, we can change maps.js of toolkit for the same.

The toolkit uses the Mapcontrol JavaScript API "http://dev.virtualearth.net/mapcontrol/mapcontrol.ashx?v=6.2" to access the virtual earth api
