Microsoft MapPoint Web Service is an XML Web service with a SOAP API that allows you to add location-based functionality to your application that calls on the high-quality maps, as well as the location-finding and routing capabilities of MapPoint Web Service. MapPoint Web Service is comprised of four constituent services: common, find, render, and route. The common service contains classes, methods, and properties that are common to the find, route, and render services, or are basic utility functions. The find service allows you to locate addresses, geographic entities, latitude and longitude coordinates, and points of interest from MapPoint Web Service data, as well as parse addresses and return location information for a specified latitude and longitude coordinate. The render service allows you to render maps of routes and found locations, place pushpins, set the map size and map view, select points on a map, get location information about points on a map, pan and zoom a rendered map, and create clickable maps. The route service allows you to generate routes, driving directions, and calculated route representations (used to render a highlighted route on the map) based on locations or waypoints, set segment and route preferences, and generate map views of segments and directions.
