Figure 1: Webpart Display with Map


This month's column covered how to build a webpart to display a map produced from Microsoft Virtual Earth. It used an HttpHandler to produce the RSS feed format to drive Virtual Earth. It can appear daunting at first, but hopefully, as you've seen, it is pretty straightforward when you break down the individual parts of the solution.
