Virtual Earth Interactive SDK

I was doing some research for some enhancements to our integration with Microsoft Virtual Earth, and I happened on this link to the Interactive SDK for Microsoft Virtual Earth.

Let me say that I was quite impressed. It even gives you source code for each example.

For instance, lets say in our Commercial Real Estate CRM solution we are looking at a property or series of properties on a map. We could have a custom menu with checkboxes such as: Restaurants, Convenience Stores, Airports, Copy and Fax centers, and Post Offices.

When the user checks one or more of the boxes, the SDK can show all businesses that match the checked categories that are nearby the property or properties on our view. The example they use in the SDK is pizza places.

Very slick stuff!!
