Just last night we released a minor update to Virtual Earth. Besides the fact that we can now generate the tokens for the Customer Identification and thus the transaction counting not only in the production- but also in the development environment we return now the complete route-geometry when you calculate a route. This feature is considered to be a 'premium feature' and is only available to enterprise customers who use the customer identification. Having access to the route-geometry allows us for instance to have multiple routes on a map... ...or together with a spatial-enabled database such as SQL Server 2008 to implement a feature which returns points of interest in a buffer around a route. Let's have a look at the latter.
