ASP.NET MVC: Implementing the WebForms Store Locator Application

Last week's article, Implementing the Store Locator Application Using ASP.NET MVC (Part 1), started a two-part article series that walked through converting my ASP.NET store locator application from WebForms to ASP.NET MVC. Last week's article stepped through the first tasks in porting the store locator application to ASP.NET MVC, including: creating the new project; copying over stylesheets, the database, scripts, and other shared content from the WebForms application; building the HomeController; and coding the Index and StoreLocator actions and views.

Recall that the StoreLocator action and view prompts the user to enter an address for which to find nearby stores. On form submission, the action interfaces with the Google Maps API's geocoding service to determine if the entered address corresponds to known latitude and longitude coordinates. If so, the user is redirected to the StoreLocatorResults action (which we create in this article) that displays the nearby stores in both a grid and as markers on a map. Unlike the StoreLocator action created in Part 1, the StoreLocatorResults action uses a more intricate model and a strongly-typed view.
