Alright, I am generally a .Net dev. But I have been given a
new project which requires a mapping solution with a regional
polygon overlay (no big deal with all the stuff out there). The
main problem I am running into, is it needs to be printable. I
started with the Yahoo Maps Flex API AS3 Wrapper, but then found
that it does not currently support custom overlays (correct?).
Google Maps is not allowed (clients-partners etc...). Virtual Earth
does not allow for printing in anything but IE, and its sketchy
their as well. What I am now looking at is flex3 consuming the
Mappoint webservices to render what I need/handle all the events,
plus the wonderful printing capabilites of flex. To tell the truth,
other than dumb components, I have not yet built a full featured
flex app. Has anyone had any experience with the mappoint API
and/or rendering the images passed back from this api?
i'm working on a map application too , i've starded with
yahoo maps but it has lots of bugs and is missing a lot of things,
i don't know mappoint api and i've decided to go with google maps
although i have a problem, i must implement it with ajax or it will
be dificult to embend the map inside flex. I wish google would have
a flex api it would be great.
