The Microsoft Canada Development Centre recently ran a contest that challenged developers to create Bing Map applications for the upcoming 2010 Winter Olympics, taking place in Vancouver, Canada. The resulting apps are designed for use by Vancouver citizens and visitors during the Olympics and use the open data from the City of Vancouver, the MS Open Government Data Initiative (OGDI) and Windows Azure. After the contest is over, the source code for all the apps will be uploaded to Codeplex.
Here’s what the developers created:
