An ever increasing number of companies are choosing SharePoint as a collaboration system. One of the main attractions with SharePoint is the ability to quickly build a shared information database through the use of Lists. SharePoint Lists can render data in multiple views to present the information in various formats tailored for use by different sets of users. These views can be a list, calendar or other custom views such as our Gantt chart view. One of the views that out-of-the-box SharePoint is missing is a Map View for SharePoint Lists that may contain geographic data. For example, address fields in a contact list or a customer list that is being used to manage sales and marketing information.
Virtual Map View product allows users to display data points as markers in a Google or Virtual Earth map using a SharePoint List or SQL table or view as the data source.
