UTFGrid in Bing Maps
Description: UTFGrid spec implementation in Bing Maps.
UTFGrid is a technology that provides the ability to have client-side interaction over raster map-tiles. Everything is very well explained in
this page (which includes a working example), but the idea is simply to have an accompanying JSON file for each map-tile containing meta-information about that image. This info is also very fast to handle
This module allows you to implement a UTF Grid in Bing Maps. The sample uses country boundary data stored as a UTF Grid for zoom levels 1 – 4. Mouse over and click events in the samples allow you to retrieve the name and population of the selected country
on the map.
