Solution details




Web Map Viewers present spatial data in cartographic (map) form via the user’s internet browser, providing some basic spatial information manipulation capabilities. Microsoft Silverlight provides a cross-browser, cross-platform development environment for delivering engaging, interactive services for the Web and mobile applications. Silverlight is a free plug-in, powered by the .NET framework that is compatible with most Web browsers, devices and operating systems. The Compass Map Viewer is based on the Esri ArcGIS API for Silverlight, which allows integration of ArcGIS Server, Esri MapIt, and Bing Maps services and capabilities in a Silverlight application. Developers create interactive applications incorporating ArcGIS Server and Bing Maps resources, e.g. maps, locators, and geoprocessing models, plus Silverlight components, such as grids, tree views, and charts.
