I’ve been playing around with Atlas the last week and having a blast. I still don’t have Visual Studio 2005 on my laptop because we only bought two licenses for this office so far so I’ve been using the free Visual Web Developer Express tool with pretty good results (it is no speed demon I’ll say that though). Anyway I had seen some press about this Atlas Virtual Earth map control in the blogs last week and finally gave it a shot today. I might need to find a .NET host because I can see really getting into these Atlas examples. Others are jumping on Atlas to use with ArcIMS too so there could be some interesting applications in the next few months.
