v8 control For BI ......
Bing is excited to announce the release of the all new Bing Maps v8 control. Their latest high-performance and developer-friendly map control includes rich new features such as Streetside imagery, autosuggest, and spatial analytics tools.
With the v8 control, customers are able to develop sophisticated BI solutions and visualize large amounts of data in new ways all with fewer lines of codes.
Now adding a map to an application can be as simple as adding a chart or other standard control, helping you reduce costs and time to develop.
The v8 control unlocks a range of key features that are designed to make BI and data visualization richer and more interactive:
- Autosuggest – Provides suggestions dynamically as you type a location in a search box.
- Clustering – Visualize large sets of pushpins, by having overlapping pushpins group and ungroup automatically as users change zoom level.
- GeoJSON Support – Easily import and export GeoJSON data, one of the most common file formats used for sharing and storing spatial data.
- Heatmaps – Visualize the density of data points as a heatmap.
- Streetside imagery – Explore 360-degrees of street-level imagery.
- Spatial Math module – Provides a large set of spatial math operations from calculating distances and areas, to performing boolean operations on shapes.
- Administrative boundary data – Easily access Bing Maps boundary data.
Explore the Interactive SDK to try out the new features and get details about the all new control at microsoft.com/maps.
Bing Spatial Data Services Update
In addition to the v8 control, we have released an update to the Bing Spatial Data Services (SDS).
For those not familiar with this service, it provides three key functionalities: (1) the ability to upload, host and expose your data as a spatial REST service, making it easy to use your data in any application without having to develop your own custom web service; (2) batch geocoding and reverse geocoding; (3) the ability to access administrative boundary data such as polygons for zip codes, cities, and countries.
The new features in SDS are included below:
- Create custom data sources using KML and Shapefiles.
- Automatically reproject Shapefiles into the WGS84 Mercator projection used by Bing Maps, making it one step easier to visualize your data on Bing Maps.
- GeoData Directory allows you to access all child boundaries of an entity using a single request (e.g., retrieve all states by country).
