Bing Map Integration with ASP.NET MVC4 application

Bing maps provides a great way to create map based applications. In this screencast , I have demonstrated the bing map integration in a ASP.NET MVC4 application.

You can create your bing map account using this link. Once you have your bing map credentials ready, you can view this screencast. Here , I have tried to plot few locations on to the bing map as pushpins. We have a controller action, which populates a list of locations (each location comprises of latitude and longitude value). In the view, we have called the controller action using $.getJson method. Finally, each of the locations returned from the controller action will be plotted on the bing map.

  1. Thank You! I’ve been pulling my hair out for awhile trying to find a somewhat easy implementation of adding multiple pushpins from locations stored in a database. For what i would assume would be a fairly common requirement, I am surprised Bing maps doesn’t offer a simpler method.
