Bing Maps for SharePoint

Want a solution that can deploy a Bing Maps webpart, install a custom field for Lat/Long with a great map picker control, and display any lists that have content in the custom coordinate field on the map?


Here is the CodePlex project:

Here is where you must go to get a Bing Maps Key:

I created a developer key and had to establish a domain name with it, but using the correct domain didn't matter for the solution to work.  This key is referenced in the web.config and twice in the control template.

Note:
I would edit the text in the control template.  I used an explanation like this:

    <div id="txtE">
        Hover over grey stripe to utilize menu or navigate in map window below to select location.
    </div>

This text is displayed on the edit form above the user control for picking a location on the map.
