Adding custom data to roads RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am exploring the possibilities of adding custom data to the roads in the Bing Maps in Windows store apps in WINJS.

    Say I have a database of coordinates, how to and what is the best way to draw such roads on the map? 

    Think of this like a tracker, i have a pre-recorded list of coodinates, now i want to show on Bing Maps all those roads that the list of coordinates has stomped on.

  • If you want to show the list of coordinates as a line then just create a polyline. If you actually want to highlight the road the coordinates are no then that's not something that can be easily done, nor is it something that the map control was designed to allow. You might be able to do something with the routing service but I doubt this will work out nice as you would like.
