Support for Windows Location API

Discussion created by gisstud on Jul 28, 2011

Does anyone (maybe someone from ESRI) know if ESRI is working on providing support for the new windows ILocationAPI COM interfaces? Specifically I want to be able to leverage the ILatLong report and the ILocationevents from within an ArcEngine app rather than just reading a NMEA string.

Now that windows is going all smart phone and leveraging multiple location sensors, it's time to use that info. If I could get a development timeline, it may even guide hardware specs Like, I might add a 3G card if I can use it's traingulation location information in the near future.

*Please go easy on me if my understanding of the windows location platform or ArcEngine API is a bit off, not a developer.
