Now, even the iPhone is making its way into enterprise applications hosted by Microsoft SharePoint with IDV Solution’s new Visual Fusion Contribute application. Below is a collection of companies helping leverage Virtual Earth with SharePoint.
- IDV Solutions is about to release Visual Fusion Contribute, which is an enterprise iPhone application that uses Virtual Earth to allow a user to contribute geo-tagged photos and notes back to SharePoint. The notes and photos can then be shared out into a Visual Fusion Server application – Visual Fusion is IDV’s product for creating geospatial mashups within SharePoint.
- ComponentOne recently launched Virtual Earth web part that brings maps to SharePoint with their on-board designer – a web form letting users set map styles, lat/lons, and zoom level. Also, this designer lets users select their data source from SharePoint Lists or SQL Server.
- Monitor Analytics’ launched GeoAnalyzer which packages up much of what you’d like to do into a nice SharePoint/SQL Server/Virtual Earth experience.
