Schools Near Me - Virtual Earth

9 minutes, 53 seconds


Right click “Save as…”

In Singapore’s Microsoft Innovation Centre,  we have been innovating on Virtual Earth. In this quick chat, I caught up with Alvin Poh, to find out what innovation he has been working on. Dubbed “Schools Near Me”, the application allows us to use a Postal Code, retrieve a set of GPS coordinates and pulls a map from Virtual Earth and overlay data onto the map to provide meaningful services and information. As the name suggests, this applications allows us to find all the schools around where I stay.

    Hi 3vild2vil,

    the site for this is at http://labs.innovativesingapore.com/SchoolsNearMe/
    Its not a released service. But its a site where we demonstrate what is possible with Virtual Earth.

    So there are times where we take down the services for revamp, integrating new codes. Mash different things up etc.

  • Hi

    I like the school prototype app.. Is it possible to get a copy of the website app so that I can contribute to its develpment?
