Atlas demo with Europe map

I’ve been playing around a bit with the April CTP release of Atlas, Microsoft’s upcoming framework for Ajax applications. I’ve done a small live demonstration with ASP.NET 2.0 which show a basic map display with pinpointed locations. The pins show some of the largest cities in Europe.

It’s very simple to use. Pan map by click-n-drag and zoom in/out with the mouse scroll wheel. Hover above the city to view its population count and ranking number on the list. The maps are provided by Microsoft Virtual Earth and the photos are taken by me.

Try the live demo.
