Geospatial mapping purposes became highly renowned lately. With smart-phone and capsule numbers snow-balling this pattern appears to be like set to proceed good into the longer term. certainly, it's precise to claim that during today’s cellular global location-aware apps have gotten the norm instead of the exception.

In Microsoft Mapping, writer Ray Rischpater showcases Microsoft's Bing Maps API and demonstrates how its integration gains make it by means of a long way the most powerful mapping candidate for company which are already utilizing home windows eight or the .NET Framework. no matter if you need to construct a brand new app from scratch of upload a couple of modest geospatial positive factors for your latest web site Ray's conscientiously selected examples offers you either the muse and the code you must in achieving your goals.

What you’'ll learn
• absolutely operating code samples that exhibit the strategies in use with ASP.NET 4.5, home windows eight and home windows Phone.
• entire ideas to the typical difficulties of geospatial improvement: visualisation, internet hosting and localization of providers are all explained.
• Demonstrates how the Bing Maps API may be attached to the Azure Cloud as a way to offer a stand-alone mapping bolt-on with little extra up-front expense and nice reliability.
• specified assurance of ways the Bing Maps API could be implanted inside home windows cellphone and iOS apps to supply a strong provider adapted to the features of every device.

By hosting both your application and your database in Azure, you minimize the network latency of requests to the database. Overview The SQL Database architecture is divided into four layers: the client layer, the service layer, the platform layer, and the infrastructure layer. Figure 3-2 shows these layers. 30 Chapter 3 ■ Geospatial with Azure SQL Database Figure 3-2. SQL Database Architecture consists of four layers: Client, Service, Platform and Infrastructure Layer The Client Layer The client layer can reside either on premise or on Azure.

This abstraction is necessary due to the fact that DateTime types require single quotes around them to be inserted, for example ‘20130107’, however, it can be often confused with a string. 44 Chapter 3 ■ Geospatial with Azure SQL Database Another interesting type is the geometry type, which is one of the geospatial types supported by SQL Database, as we described earlier. Here we used a single geometry, Point, to represent our latitude and longitude. Close(); } } Wrapping up In this chapter you learned about hosting geospatial data on SQL Database.

Scalability is made possible because SQL Database enables you to spin up as many virtual machines as you require. Availability is made possible because SQL Database handles the load balancing for you. And security and reliability are possible because SQL Database replicates your data across different locations and Windows Azure automatically handles the security for you. Your databases may reside on different physical computers at the Microsoft data center. One key difference is that because your data is automatically replicated, and you do not have access to the computer’s file systems; the SQL Server backup and restore commands are not applicable to SQL Database.
