Toolkit for PHP with Virtual Earth (Bing Maps)

Enables PHP developers to easily add Microsoft Virtual Earth (Bing Maps) maps to their web applications

Project Detail

This project demonstrates how PHP applications can take advantage of Microsoft's Virtual Earth. The Virtual Earth API is exposed through a Javascript library making it straightforward to integrate into any web based application. The project integrates Microsoft's Virtual Earth Web Service and API to embed a map into a PHP application. Web site users can add their location to the map, displaying a pin for every user location stored in the database. The solution package includes the code needed to embed a Virtual Earth map in a PHP web page. Step by step instructions are included to help PHP developers set up a database and appropriate table to store user submitted locations. Separate instructions are provided for SQL Express 2005/2008 and MySQL users.
