DeepEarth is a mapping control powered by the combination of Microsoft’s Silverlight 2.0 platform and the DeepZoom (MuliScaleImage) control. At its core, it builds on these innovative technologies to provide an architecture for bringing together layers for services, data providers, and your own custom mapping elements together into an impressive user experience. Also featured are in depth examples of how you can leverage Virtual Earth Web Services to take advantage of advanced GIS service functionality. This is what you need to get an interactive, native Silverlight 2.0, map into your application today.
A big thank you goes out to those that tested the control and provided bug reports, feature requests and feedback. A special mention to Nicolas Boonaert, Rob Aanhane, Bronwen Zande, bretm, Ozzy1 and rmatsu for their bug finding efforts.
