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”.
