In order to celebrate the Product of the Month for September, Virtual Map View, I will be hosting two webinars where I’ll walk you through the Web Part’s powerful capabilities as well as provide time for a product Q&A session. Happening this Wednesday, September 3 at 8 am EDT and Thursday, September 4 at 3 pm EDT, we’ll help show you a better way to visualize geographic data.
During the 30-minute demonstrations, I’ll show attendees not only how Virtual Map View offers users the ability to use Google or Bing Maps to easily display SharePoint lists or SQL data on a map, but also how it enhances user experience by providing multiple columns of list information in addition to geographical locations.
Some of the capabilities we’ll feature in the webinar include:
- Display SharePoint Data in Map View
Allow users to display data points as markers in a Google or Microsoft Bing map using a SharePoint List or SQL table or view as the data source.
- Link to Google and Bing Maps
Integrate with your favorite mapping platforms. Virtual Map View interfaces with Microsoft Virtual Earth Map Web Services, as well as allow users to display data directly in a Google map.
- View Data on a Local or Global Scale
Graphically display data in a city, country, continent, or region to show demographic data such as sales, distribution, customers, or other statistical data.
- Display Multiple Marker Types
Denote different types of data with multiple marker types, including custom images. Additionally, Virtual Map View automatically displays the “best view” of all your data points when the map renders.
- Utilize Full Navigation Controls
Zoom in/out and pan to view markers. Users can hover over a marker for snapshot details or select a marker to display additional related information.
I encourage you to join us either Wednesday, September 3 at 8 am EDT or Thursday, September 4 at 3 pm EDT and learn how you might minimize SharePoint-related headaches and maximize maps in SharePoint with Virtual Map View from Bamboo.
