The AnnotatedEarth can be accessed via a .NET Service. Any client that can
call a URL and receive back a XML document in the return stream can access
location information on AE. If you are using a .NET program to access AE,
add a reference to the main service at
http://www.annotatedearth.com/AELocationService/. If you are
using some other technology, go to that URL to get information about how to
call the various URL's.
If you interested in developing AnnotatedEarth-enabled applications,
please read the AnnotatedEarth Site, GNU, and Developer licenses.
Several examples using AE will be released shortly, including C# .NET,
VB, and MFC client.
The ASP/VBScript example is now available: http://www.annotatedearth.com/software/asp/nearme/nearme.asp
This example lets a user enter in their current location and a distance, and
uses the AE Location Service to get a list of locations. This shows how
easy it is to interface to the underlying AE system - it took ~45 minutes to
fully write the example (and it's the first time the service has been accessed
from ASP/VBScript). Source code available

All pages on this web sit, excluding user signup (which can only be done via
this web site), were created using the location.asmx service.
