In this MWC/ADC 2013 presentation Vaughan Knight, Developer Technical Support Manager at Nokia, provides an overview to the new mapping and location features in Windows Phone 8. These features include a new map control that no longer requires a key, support for offline maps, and pedestrian landmark among others. He then looks at coding map and location apps with the new control and geolocator before showing you how to launch Nokia Direction and Nokia drive from your app as well as use the offline features.
