Hey guys I been busy but managed to get a simple article finished today.

http://www.soulsolutions.com.au/Articles/Encodingforperformance/tabid/96/Default.aspx

Hopefully it will go up on the ViaVE site and I'll put the code in the WIKI also.

Anyway I'm going to aim to write a little article every week to share with you all, this is the plan currently:

  1. Encoding Latitude and Longitude pairs for performance
  2. Loading your pushpin popup content on demand
  3. Clustering Virtual Earth V2
  4. Throttling AJAX webservices
  5. Exploring Circles
  6. Clustering in Javascript alone
  7. Preloader for Javascript
  8. MS AJAX Extensions and Virtual Earth
  9. Processing VE data in batches for performance

That should keep me going for a few months!

Let me know what you think.

John.

Great article, John.

But one final question remains, how's the decoding performance on the browser side

I could just answer it myself by doing some tests, unfortunately i dont have the spare time for it right now, coz i have my *** full of work.

do you have some benchmark numbas

Yeah it would be a good thing to look at. I reckon by the code the decoding is much faster then the encoding, but it would be great to check. I have seen a serious increase in performance, I guess sending only 25% of the data over the internet increases performance more then the decoding can cancel it out.
