Mfabiop - Still a draf

Hi Bintk,

I guess that this article is still a draf. But maybe i be wrong, so i'll let you decide to mark the Draft category.

I see this article like a central hub for Map articles of the Forum Nokia and MSDN. It's usefull and save much developer's time. I think that would be better to organize the links as a FAQ.

Something like:

Question: How can I show a shape on my Map? Answer: Follow some of these articles: (article 1, article 2, ...)

What do you think? I can help you to get some questions and links. I've been working with Maps since last week and it was a little bit hard to fix specific problems that I've faced.

Bintk - HI Mfabiop

I'm sorry I've delete the Draft category By mistake

I am now working on adding many code examples and references in English and Arabic

Manas Chaudhari - Common maps for WP7.1, WP8


If I want to include maps in an application supporting both WP7.1 and WP8, how should I go about it? Will I have to make separate projects for WP7.1 and WP8 as one uses Bing maps control while other uses Here maps or is there a better solution?

EDIT: I found the solution at!co-development-and-porting-guide/case-study-diner-application.html

Hamishwillee - Yes - ish

Well, the Bing maps work in both WP7.1 and WP8.0, so you could just use the Bing maps. But they are deprecated and nowhere near as good. So the recommendation is to do as you have suggested.
