Very Basic Map Example
Step 1. Create a HTML or .Net page, let’s call it Sample_1
Step 3. Modify the BODY tag of your HTML page to match this,
<body onload="GetMap();"> We modified the body tag so the page will call the GetMap() function when the page first loads.
Step 4. Now let’s add a place holder for Microsoft Map. Add the following code within the opening and closing of the BODY tag
<div id='myMap' style="position:relative; width:400px; height:400px;"></div> Notice we have id="myMap". This is used by Step 2 above and our code in Step 3 which will load Microsoft Map here. It’s basically used as a map placeholder.
That is all, now you have a page that will show Google Maps using the API, offered by Microsoft Virtual Earth for free. See the screen shot of this example so far. (Example_1.jpg)
