Create a Metro Style Geospatial Application using Windows 8, HTML5 and JavaScript

A session at CodePaLOUsa 2012

Friday 16th March, 2012

5:00pm to 6:00pm (EST)

Windows 8 offers a solid foundation for building your next spatial application. The WinRT sensor API permits easy access to location and device orientation data. The WinJS projection of WinRT allows you to use existing JavaScript libraries. HTML5 provides a Canvas element for custom rendering. And HTTP can be used to connect to your web services for data access. This session will demonstrate how all of these pieces come together to provide a rich user experience for surfacing your spatial data.
