      This sample code creates a map that displays the location of all of your contacts included in the Business Contacts list in Contact Manager in a Microsoft Office Live Small Business account. This mashup leverages the Microsoft Virtual Earth APIs and the Web services in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services 3.0. It is an example of one way in which Web services can be used to create Web Parts that enhance Office Live Small Business applications.
      You can set up a map, add contacts from the Business Contacts list, and manage those contacts from an existing contact map.
