ThinkGeo's Map Suite Web Is Now AJAX-Enabled

Will Give .NET Developers Enhanced Web Mapping Applications By Providing Faster, More Responsive Mapping Controls

ThinkGeo announced that Map Suite Web, its .NET-native GIS mapping control, now features the power of AJAX, which will greatly enhance a user’s internet mapping experience. With the implementation of AJAX technologies, Map Suite Web will give .NET developers enhanced web mapping applications by providing faster, more responsive mapping controls. With Map Suite Web and AJAX, users will be able to Track Zoom, Zoom In, Zoom Out, and Pan a map area without having to do post-backs, resulting in map controls that are faster and more efficient.

AJAX, or Asynchronous JavaScript + XML, is a collection of Web development technologies that combine in a powerful and unique way to enhance the interactivity, feel, response, and speed of web pages and web applications. AJAX restructures the classic web application model in a way that results in faster web page and interface loads, requiring less wait time on the part of the user.

“AJAX is incredibly easy to implement into Map Suite Web as well as extremely flexible. The implementation of AJAX into Map Suite Web involves having an AJAX event on the server side for the Map Control. The result is that .NET developers using Map Suite Web will be able to experience all the benefits of AJAX while keeping the majority of their coding on the server side of things,” said Clint Batman, President of ThinkGeo LLC.
