      20 Years! Cre8asiteforums 1998 - 2018   01/18/2018

      Cre8asiteforums In Its 20th Year In case you didn't know, Internet Marketing Ninjas released many of the online forums they had acquired, such as WebmasterWorld, SEOChat, several DevShed properties and these forums back to their founders. You will notice a new user interface for Cre8asiteforums, the software was upgraded, and it was moved to a new server.  Founder, Kim Krause Berg, who was retained as forums Admin when the forums were sold, is the hotel manager here, with the help of long-time member, "iamlost" as backup. Kim is shouldering the expenses of keeping the place going, so if you have any inclination towards making a donation or putting up a banner, she is most appreciative of your financial support.

Microsoft Virtual Earth Books

Recommended Posts

I have been interested in getting to grips with the Virtual Earth API for a while and decided to have a look on amazon and get a book :) .... But.... there are none??

 

I know this is a long shot, but has anyone seen or heard of any new books on the Virtual Earth API? Thanks

One of the truisms that I've seen on the Web for a long time is that the best place to learn about the Web is on the Web.

 

The last time I delved into Microsoft's Virtual Earth, I found a number of blogs and community sites set up on the topic, like this one:

 

http://viavirtualearth.com/vve/Dashboard/Default.ashx

 

It links to, and features articles like this one:

 

Clustering Virtual Earth on Version 5 RSS

http://viavirtualearth.com/vve/Articles/Clustering3.ashx

 

and this one:

 

Customizing your own Mini-Map RSS

http://viavirtualearth.com/vve/Articles/MiniMap.ashx

 

I suspect that those are more timely, and might help you more than a book on the subject.

You're welcome.

 

If you aren't subscribed to the RSS feeds for some of the mapping blogs out there, you may want to consider doing that, too.

 

Here are a couple on Virtual Earth:
