Deep Earth project grows, something cool to share.

The DeepEarth codeplex project continues to grow with more developers, discussions, work items and source code. Huge thanks goes to Shaun who has be building out a concept for the architecture of the control and Jonas who made a cool dashboard control.

I thought I would share a rather cool example of what you can do, a pin on the map that when you click animates to show a deep zoom panorama:

I think the ability to have something quite advanced such as this as a marker on the map is one very interesting and powerful feature of a Silverlight Map control. Having deep zoom on top of deep zoom does cause some issues, for example I had to disable the mouse scroll wheel on the marker as by default it activated both controls.

What do you think of having much more interactive elements as markers?
