Bing Map Interaction

    Question

  • Hi,

    I was wondering can anyone help? I working on a game where I would like to move the Bing map based on the accelerometers  reading . I.e. As I tilt the device the map will move in that direction. Is this at all possible?

    Thanks

    Yes of course you can, write your own logic for the user action and apply the new position to Bing Map should be ok.

    Windows.Devices.Sensors namespace contains some good class for you for instance: Accelerometer Compass and even Gyrometer if you need.

    And for how to apply the change on Bing Map, I think Bing Maps for Windows Store apps should be a better choice.

  • Thanks James,

    I'll post my question to the Bing Maps Forum as you suggested. Its relocating a map to the accelerometer readings that I'm struggling with.

    Cheers
