MapIt is a new tool developed by GIS company ESRI in close collaboration with Microsoft that transforms the static spreadsheet and tabular data that managers typically view into dynamic information displayed on vibrant maps. Designed to work seamlessly on the Microsoft application platform, it combines software and services to unlock the spatial knowledge in enterprise data contained in Microsoft SQL Server 2008 and Microsoft Office Excel. In this presentation we will demonstrate the MapIt technology stack showing integration with Bing Maps for Enterprise along with street and imagery basemaps, geocoding and routing services; demographic and customer segmentation and much more. You will see maps displayed in rich, interactive applications which leverage the power of Microsoft Silverlight, Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) and Microsoft SharePoint Server 2007.With MapIt we will show how you can quickly develop rich interactive applications that transform your existing information in record time.
