I want to build a .NET application that can get an input of 2 lat/long points and return an output that specified the driving distance between the points. Appreciate suggestions for API's or methods to perform that task. Thanks

Do you want to use web services, or with road network data sets stored on your local machine? – Kirk Kuykendall Sep 27 '11 at 19:09
I was thinking about web services, but any other solution will be accepted gladly – Sagi Sep 29 '11 at 8:41

2 api's spring to mind, the ESRI network task service and the google directions service.

I'm sure Bing has one as well
