This session will not teach you why we are on Earth, but it will teach you how to find out where we are on it. Looking for the user? Find the phone. Thanks to standard built-in Location Services and hybrid positioning hardware, every Windows Phone knows where it is. In this session, ActiveNick shows you how to build a truly “smart” phone application by adding Location Intelligence Services (LIS) to it. Using Microsoft Visual Studio, the Windows Phones SDK and other geospatial APIs from Nokia, Google and Bing Maps, you will learn how to locate the device in the world using the phone GPS and other Location Services, display maps and manipulate them with touch gestures, geocode addresses into lat/long pairs, and display the results on a map using pushpins, UI elements and more. We’ll discuss the various mapping technologies, SDKs and APIs in the GIS world and explore how Windows Phone apps can participate in geospatial circles. Location Intelligence is a natural extension of mobility: Come learn how it’s done.
