Please how do I display multiple City/State or City/Country pushpins from a datasource (ie: xml, SQL) when Bing Maps loads?
The production datasource only has Cities and not latitudes and longitudes.
(Using Visual Studio 2010 and Silverlight)
Thank you for any assistance.

If you want to display them as pushpins then I would recommend geocoding your data ahead of time (city/state) information so that you have coordinates. If you want polygons then you will need to find a data source that has the boundary information. The sample data that comes with the AJAX Map Data Connector has this: http://ajaxmapdataconnector.codeplex.com/

I am going to try this later. In my case, all coordinates (lat and long) are in MS Access DB.
After you can use AJAX Bing Map control to display pushpins from array. Definitely you will need to populate latitude and longitude before displaying any pushpins.
I hope this help.
