Testing Live Local integration with Live Writer

Filed under: Microsoft — Vamshi @ 12:53 am

Live Writer comes with pretty interesting integration to Live Local. So I can do this (note the pushpin):

Or this (aerial imagery):

And even insert the bird’s eye imagery from Live Local:


The Needle!!!

Pros:

  • Very easy Live Local Map integration
  • Re-sizing inserted map image brings in more tiles from Live Local automatically into the static image that is generated
  • Easy way to point people to a map with multiple explanatory pushpins on it
  • Just cool…

Cons:

  • Inserted image is static rather than a Live Local map control that you can zoom/pan around in, etc.
    • Probably the biggest weakness for an otherwise great implementation
  • Push pin support is nice, but the push pin details can’t be resolved without clicking on the link and going to Live Local
