Introduction

As part of the Windows Azure challenge I will create a website that uses Silverlight and Azure to allow a person to enter and track their orders using a database and online mapping.  

Background 

My past experience as a dispatcher has shown me that there is room for improvement the integration of mapping and order / technician tracking. Current technology allows developers to easily map custom icons and geocode addresses. This site will integrate a customer / order / technician database with geocoding of customer addresses and technician locations and then placing custom icons on a integrated online map

Using the code

I will be using an HTML page that links to a Silverlight page which will contain the user interface for entering the customer(s) and technician(s) information and than create orders from that information. Each order will be mapped in an integrated Bing maps for Silverlight.  This code will use the tools that have become available to most users in recent years, Demonstrating the integration of some real time tools available online. People I have talked to expect secure online applications that they can access from any location, at any time, from any computer and never have to update. That can be done using Azure, Visual Studio and Silverlight.

Points of Interest

Online mapping using Bing maps and Silverlight.
