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.

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

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++ ...
