InfoStrat Contributes Surface Software to CodePlex

This week we have published some of our software for Microsoft Surface on CodePlex, making it available to the broader development community.

"InfoStrat.VE allows WPF and Microsoft Surface developers to take full advantage of Virtual Earth 3D with minimal overhead. Simply reference the dll, add a single VEMap control to your XAML, and you have a map! The control eliminates the Win32 Interop restrictions, so you can do everything with this VE control that you could do with any native WPF control, including:
Overlay items (no more transparent windows!)
Rotate and transform the map within the interface (no more boring rectangles, bring on the 360 degree interfaces!)
Use the map within a Visual Brush (you know you want faded reflections!)”

Hats off to Josh Blake and Josh Wall for the creativity, initiative and technical skills to provide an important piece to the broader Microsoft Single View Platform.

See what Marc Schweigart is saying about it.

Some of the tools in the Project Management Software are applicable to several business models. They are the driving force that makes online project management software successful. It's important to know everything associated with your project whether it is a logistical problem like supplies and money, or whether it is a time tracking issue.
