Although we no longer believe that celestial spheres surround the Earth, that’s still a handy concept for programs that let you use a smartphone to view a virtual world. Such a program needs to determine its orientation in 3D space, and Charles Petzold explains how to accomplish this using the horizontal coordinate system.

Getting a map on the Windows Phone screen is easy, but rotating it so that north on the map is actually pointing north is another matter entirely. Charles Petzold describes how he used the Bing Maps SOAP Service to get the results he wanted. The Motion sensor in Windows Phone 7.5 consolidates information from the phone’s compass and accelerometer to create a rotation matrix that describes the orientation of the phone in 3D space. Recently I began pondering how the phone’s orientation could be used in combination with Bing Maps. I anticipated a quickie mashup but the job turned out to be rather more complex.
