See more: C++ Google-Maps Arduino
Hello,
 
I need help on writing a Windows Form Application in C++, which does the following:
 
1. Use Google Maps (satellite view) to find 2 Latitude Longitude coordinates entered by the user and zoom in on the section of the map located between them.

2. Click in a series of consecutive points on the map and receive their coordinates and save them to an array.
 
3. Send these coordinates over serial to an Arduino.
 
Thanks.
Boris.

Okay good you know what it is that you want to do.... what specific programming question is it that you have?

I believe google will answer that question. google provide the specific api to do so, its better search on google.
 
If you embed a website with your app you can simply do that

Solution 1

Sounds like a geofencing application.
How about http://greatmaps.codeplex.com/[^] their screen shots show a WinForms Application, so this is exactly what you need, including some geocoding-math, you will need.
Then you will probably need something like https://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/aff7d8be-02a2-4afb-b5c9-3c32e89825e5[^],http://www.visualmicro.com/page/Arduino-Visual-Studio-Downloads.aspx[^], maybe the Atmel Studio.
Read any ardurion how-to like http://playground.arduino.cc/Code/VisualStudio[^]
But that's a C#/.net solution. For C++ the tools needed are similar, but woul have to find a component for the map stuff or use the browser component, code one part in html + js and shift the coordinates to c++ ...
