This is project details

.Creating  own WebService (using Visual Studio C#.NET) that accepts the Name of a Scottish mountain as input and returns the Location, Height and Weather information for that mountain.

Create a Windows Application (using Visual Studio C#.NET) that relies on the WebService -and displays the Mountains on a map of Scotland along with information about height and weather.


i have an xml file that has all the information about all mountains but i have  the location details in Grid reference (NGR) and not latitude and longitude.

so i have to convert the  grid references to Latitude and Longitude and display the marker at that location on the screen(on windows application)
