Canada Topographic Map for Windows Phone

October 27th, 2011

I’m a little behind in posting this, but I managed to get a new free app published to the Windows Phone Marketplace called “Canada Topography“.  As it sounds it is a set of topographic maps for Canada.  The maps I used are provided by the Canadian Government as a a WMS service.


The application simply overlays these maps on top of a base Bing Maps layer.  Doing this is pretty simple and I will try to add a subsequent post on how to do this to allow you to add any WMS service as an overlay to Bing Maps.

In the application, I also added some GPS capabilities to allow the user to locate their current position as well as a search button to do a Bing Maps lookup.  For example, if they wanted to reposition to “Whistler, BC”.
