A newbie question: why there are two projects?

Mar 30, 2010 at 4:44 PM

I notice there are two projects under DeepEarth:

  • a multi-provider silverlight map control called the DeepEarth Map control
  • a rich and performant map toolkit for the Microsoft Bing Maps Silverlight control

    I am wondering why not provide a toolkit for DeepEarth Map control. The Bing Maps control seems unrelevant to the DeepEarth Map control.

    Thanks!

    it's really a question of resources. Recent development on deep earth has been driven by a few projects that build on the bing map control. We'd love for the toolkit to be across both map controls, but haven't found the time or projects yet. Was there some need you had in mind?

    thanks,Geoff

    It's very hard to make a toolkit to support both control.
