Virtual Earth custom tile client (in Silverlight)
While RaceReplay.net works "acceptably" overlaying Silverlight and Virtual Earth to visualize animated/map data, it would be even better (smoother, easier to synchronize) if there was a Virtual Earth client in Silverlight, rather like this Flash map client for Yahoo Maps.
So, using tips from these instructions on
rolling your own tile server here is a first attempt at a Silverlight Virtual Earth Tile Client. I could post the source code - but as with all Silverlight 1.0 stuff, it's right there on the page!
The real question is - how much work to get from here to something that actually works?
