Capital Area .NET SharePoint Special Interest Group Meetup

SharePoint 2010 as a Platform for Utilizing and Visualizing Geolocation Data

The presentation starts with an 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.

Tim Ferro is a local SharePoint Architect and Senior SharePoint Developer. He has been working almost exclusively with SharePoint 2007/2010 for the past five years.

    Good presentation and fun to see Google Maps solution although more direct comparisons with Bing Maps would have been a plus.

    The session was great. It allowed me to understand SharePoint as the Data Utilization and Visualization Platform. I will be attending other sessions to gain more knowledge and learn new enhancements.

    The session was decent with Tim Ferro giving information on visualizing mapping data with SharePoint 2010 and Google Maps API.

    I'm very fresh in Sharepoint - 4 hours. Where to find a normal manual to start SharePoit?
