Bing Maps Sessions at //Build/

Leveraging Maps & Location in your Windows Phone, Tablet, and PC Apps

Speaker(s): Mike Ammerlaan, Rohan Thakkar
Session Code: 757
Date: Wednesday, April 29 from 3:30pm – 4:30pm

Windows 10 brings a converged, superset version of our existing phone and desktop map controls and location platforms (i.e. offline maps, better traffic data, system provided location consents, etc.) in addition to new and exciting features such as Streetside and real 3D imagery. In this session, we’ll demonstrate how Windows itself is taking advantage of our maps platform in our Maps application and how you can easily delight your customers with maps in your UAP apps!

Visualizing Business data on any device with Bing Maps

Speaker: Ricky Brundritt
Session Code: 645
Date: Friday, May 1 from 12:30 PM – 1:30 PM

For years business and location intelligence have been two separate and distinct processes. With the rise of social media and Big Data these two areas have grown ever closer together. So much so that Microsoft now provides mapping tools in nearly every single one of its products. In this session we will take a look at the various tools available for working with Location based Business Intelligence data. In addition to this we will also take a look at how to create custom cross platform apps that visualize business data on Bing Maps.
