Can I display a, non interactive, overview, mini map, on each row in my table?

    Question

  • Hi

    I have a table where I display a brief overview of data which also have a geographic location.

    I think the rows of my table are 60px high (They appear as 2-3 cm high on my laptop)

    I am considering if I could have a mini map in each of my table rows, giving just a brief overview of where in the country my data is located.

    The maps should not be interactive. Just a mini map with an overview of my country and then a pushpin to indicate the location of my data.

    So I am interested in some advice of how to do this?

    If it's too difficult, I will properly drop it. But in case there is an easy solution I might adopt it.

    Any advice?

  • If your "table" is in an HTML page, then you can use the Bing Maps REST imagery service to request a map of the appropriate location in JPG format, say, and then insert it into the appropriate row(s) in the table using an <img> tag. See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff701724.aspx

    If your "table" is a report, say, from SSRS, then you can use the inbuilt SSRS map component.
