SharePoint 2010 as a Platform for Utilizing & Visualizing Geolocation Data with Tim Ferro

The presentation starts with a brief overview of SharePoint 2010 with a focus on all of the areas that will be discussed throughout the presentation including BCS connections, web parts, event receivers, JavaScript, and external web services. I then discuss a basic custom web part that leverages Google Maps for visualization. Next I discuss available external web services that can be leveraged. Finally I demo an enhanced custom web part that leverages multiple external web services or third party programs as well as shows how to integrate all the data both internally and externally. I wrap up the presentation with multiple options for implementing this solution including custom code, JavaScript, or a combination of both. The presentation and code (soon) will be freely available via my blog and website.

      I am not sure there was. This is a good question just in case people can not attend in the future. Dan if you are reading this can you let us know if there is a dial in number for the monthly meetings? thx!

    Great stuff!! I'm new to SharePoint and I just can't stop to be amazed by everything that you can do with it. Tim Ferro was great presenting this material. His insight, not only in SharePoint capabilities but also in how it may be applied in a business setting, is invaluable.
    Thank you for a wonderful and very interesting presentation.
