Force Virtual Earth Road Style Maps to Shaded Style

Filed under: AJAX, JavaScript, Virtual Earth — Joel Rumerman @ 11:18 am

With Virtual Earth 6.1 there’s a new map style called Shaded that places topographical information on the map in the road view. It’s sort of a combination of Aerial and Road styles and is set to replace the Road view. In fact, uses the new Shaded map style instead of the previous Road view so whenever you think you’re viewing the Road style you’re actually viewing the Shaded style.

Today, MSFT released a beta of Visual Studio 2008 .NET 3.5 SP1. Scott Guthrie has a loooong blog entry on all the things they fixed. Looks to be a promising release. Can’t wait to try out the new JS fixes and see if the release actually speeds up ASP.NET requests/sec by the 10% Scott claims.
