Windows Phone App: Residents

I was asked to prepare a simple prototype Windows mobile app that could be used by a political candidate when he was canvassing neighborhoods on foot. The application was to prepare him with the name of the people who live in the home where he is about to knock on the door by querying our online database. If our demographic record contains it, we would also provide information regarding the primary resident's political contribution history.

The application ran in two modes; First, the mobile device's onboard GPS would provide the holder's coordinates, and they would be checked against our database for the geocode to residence match. Mode 2 allowed the user to type the address for cases where our geocode didn't possess sufficient precision for an area to return resident information.
