I am very confused by what the website says about support for data types. The website says that this version:
"Natively handle Shapefile, TAB, Oracle Spatial, SQL 2008, PostGIS & more"
But, how is this possible? We specifically need to know, how can a Windows Phone 7 device send and receive spatial data from SQL Server 2008. Please explain how this is achieved.
Secondly, our application needs to be an offline solution. We will be syncing spatial data in to a database called EffiProz in isolated storage. The data type will be of an image data type. But, the data will be stored in the OGC standard format. Can we render this data in the Windows Phone Edition? How?
Does the Windows Phone Edition have support for Shape Files stored on the device or in isolated storage? (i.e. not served up from a web service).
