[UWP] MapControl (Bing map) data visualization (heatmap and other methods) RRS feed

Answers

  • I've created a set of spatial tools that do things like this for a bunch of the Bing Maps controls. I haven't yet ported this over to Windows 10 but this may provide you the tools you need to create what you are trying to make. You can find the tools here: http://mapstoolbox.codeplex.com/

  • Not at present. I'm sure a UWP version will be created at some point, but I don't have the time work on one.

  • Hello PV,

    As far as I know, there is not such a heat map feature in default map control. But actually we can display pushpins, images, and shapes on the MapControl by adding them to its MapElements collection.

    So if you want to do own heat map you may try add a circle filled with a background with a transparency gradient, fully transparent on the edge and medium transparency at the other.

    And for those projects, I can only find Windows 8.1 version https://code.msdn.microsoft.com/windowsapps/Heat-Maps-in-Windows-Store-5e8982d9 I cannot find UWP related version. Maybe you need to customize it yourself.

    Best regards,

    Barry

  • Thanks for the reply, MapPolygon accepts only FillColor (typeof(Color)).

    Is there any way how to implement my own MapElement? How does MapControl works under the hood?

    If you could point me to the more resources, it would be great.

    Thanks.

    PV

  • It seems like nice project, I will definitely look into it. It would be nice, if it was ported to the UWP.

  • Ricky,

    Do you have any plans to port this to UWP?

    I like what is there, but it goes beyond my skills to convert it quickly. It seems that the big issue is the lack of System.Drawing in UWP, so large chunks of HeatMapRenderEngine need to be reworked.

    Thanks,

    Simon
