Voter Analysis Interactive Bing Map
The Voter Analysis Interactive Map allows users to create a query against an SQL Server database and review the resulting set of voters on a Virtual Earth map and data grid. Voters can then be selected by drawing a box on the map and used for creating reports and mail lists. By moving the mouse over a voter icon a popup window of household data is displayed.
The Bing API is integrated into the .NET environment and used in both server-side and client-side modules. After processing the query on the server, the voter points and precinct boundaries are written to GeoRSS XML files which are consumed on the client side and displayed over the Virtual Earth basemap.
