Asked On April 4, 2013 04:22 AM

hi, 

I have several questions:
1. Can I add images to the map without adding a shape layer ?My main background is an image, and not a shp file. 
2. Where can i get more information about LatitudeLongitudeType="Custom".
3. Is there any build in component for map drawing (polygons, polylines, circles...)? Drag and drop icons?
4. After adding a symbol in a shp layer, how can I declare that the user can't move this symbol?
5. Can i implement my own layer? for example a RasterLayer? Any good practice about it?

thank you

Can I add images to the map without adding a shape layer? My main background is an image, and not a shp file.

We cannot add Image instead of shape file layer in the map control

 Where can i get more information about LatitudeLongitudeType="Custom".

We can set the LatitudeLongitudeType="Custom" by specify a “LatLonConverter” property for it,

But there is some issue by using this property

 Is there any build in component for map drawing (polygons, polylines, circles...)? Drag and drop icons?

Yes, There are many tools available for draw(polygons, polylines)  in the map Such as,

·         ArcGIS

·         QuantumGis

  

After adding a symbol in a shp layer, how can I declare that the user can't move this symbol?

There is no property to restrict the movement of the symbols, but we can achieve this scenario by set the “IsHitTestVisible” property of the MapSymbols as false.

 

Code Snippet:

<maps:MapSymbols

       IsHitTestVisible="False"

Latitude="46"Longitude="-119"    SymbolText="Cloudy" >

                               <maps:MapSymbols.Symbol>

   <Image Source="{StaticResource Cloudy}"

       Height="25" Width="25"/>

                                </maps:MapSymbols.Symbol>

Can i implement my own layer? for example a RasterLayer? Any good practice about it?

Currently, the Map control supports only “ShapeFileLayer” and “BingMapLayer” alone.
