Calling the TerraService Web Service - Day 4 - Part 7

7 minutes, 18 seconds


Right click “Save as…”

In this video Bob uses the Day 3 example to call the TerraService passing the coordinates from the phone's GPS to the web service in order to retrieve the city, state, and country. These values are saved in a private member variable of the class, which can be used when the note is saved.

    Hi! I'm still stuck on that one. I've got those nasty warnings and errors. Does anyone have a solution? thanks

  • VinceVince

    Sorry, I got the solution : just don't launch VS with admin rights and it works fine!

  • I always get stuck on this. I always get those errors, and the one time that I didn't, I was unable to properly get my location.

    I live in London Canada, and when I got to msrmaps.com, only the states are green. Does this mean that the terra service will not be able to tell me where I am in Canada? If not, is there another service that will work in Canada?

  • I got it to work. I needed to have

    myWatcher = new GeoCoordinateWatcher(GeoPositionAccuracy.High); 
    myWatcher.MovementThreshold = 20; 

  • and myWatcher.Start();
