Map Suite Windows Phone Edition gives .NET developers the ability to deliver a completely custom GIS solution to Windows Phone 7 handsets. It also integrates with the device’s GPS and boasts full support for touch events, including pinch zooming and tapping to draw and edit shapes. WP7 apps built with Map Suite Windows Phone Edition can utilize custom map data (including consumption of WMS services), perform spatial queries, track vehicles, draw thematic maps and much more, going far beyond what’s possible with the simple map services built into Windows Phone 7.
