Building Mobile Web Application For Live Maps

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Hello Everyone,

                        I am planning to build an Mobile Web Application for showing live maps (tracking). I already have an Web Application created which has database  that gets updated on the go, receiving data from GPS devices. So the GPS device gets tracked LIVE! This information is shown using Open Source Street Maps & Silverlight & ASP.NET.

The features that i would require for my mobile web app is:

1. Showing live location of a GPS device (I already have the database). Also show the moving path of the device.

2. Providing login functionality.(Connected to the database that i already have)

3. Store user prefferences like username, password, selected location etc.

Can any one give me a lead as to how i should go about this. I have to make sure that my application is compatible with maximum possible mobile devices. Do you think that ASP.NET is the best platfrom to build this WebSite, cause i am even open to other platforms?

Thanks in advance

Creating a Smartphone Application and Using Data from SQL Mobile

In this exercise, you will use Visual Studio 2005 to create a Smartphone application. You will associate commands with a mobile device's soft keys, and you will add the ability to scroll through the list of available products (a list of images). You will create a data source for an existing SQL Mobile database, and then test the application in the Windows Mobile 5.0 emulator.

In the following procedure, you will create a new Windows Mobile 5.0 project in Visual Studio.

.NET Internals: Tailor Your Application by Building a Custom Forms Designer with .NET


The design-time architecture of Windows Forms in the .NET Framework has made development much more flexible than it had been with MFC. With Windows Forms, you can drag one of your custom controls from the toolbox and drop it onto the Visual Studio design surface and even though Windows Forms knows nothing about the control, it's able to host it and let you manipulate its properties-not possible in MFC. In this article, the author discusses what's going on under the covers as you design your forms and then walks through the creation of a bare-bones forms designer.

Wireless Web: Microsoft Mobile Internet Toolkit Lets Your Web Application Target Any Device Anywhere


If you've built Web sites using ASP.NET, you'll welcome the Microsoft Mobile Internet Toolkit (MMIT). MMIT extends the Visual Studio .NET IDE you already know by providing new controls for handheld devices letting you easily develop applications for wireless devices. This means you can write less code while adapting it to more devices. Not only does MMIT integrate with Visual Studio .NET, it extends ASP.NET as well. This article gives you the background you need to write, test, and deploy a site with MMIT and make all your code able to target specific devices for a custom fit.
