    Flex and Mapping api's

    Smitchmor
      Open Question, could anyone suggest strategies to integrate mapping
      internally into a flex application.

      From what I've determined:

      Yahoo! doesn't have a Flex 2.0 map API (with no firm release date), just Flex 1.5
      At least one workaround has been provided,
      http://www.asfusion.com/blog/entry/inserting-yahoo-maps-in-a-flex-2-application
      which is creative, but not necessarily intuitive.

      & there are several nice flex implementations
      http://www.arcwebservices.com/awx/index.jsp
      http://plasma.nationalgeographic.com/mapmachine/index.html
      but no raw materials to use in my own app.

      Fair to say that at the present time the easiest method is to use a javascript
      api, perhaps using a method like the following:

      http://coenraets.org/samples/flexmaps/flexmaps.html
      where certain interface components are in flash.

      As I said, a very open question. Thanks.
