Overview

The WinForms Map control is a powerful data visualization component that displays statistical information for a geographical area. It has highly interactive and customizable features such as zooming, panning, selecting, markers, bubbles, and color mapping. Using the Map control, you can render various types of maps, such as sales, political boundary, weather, electoral, and route.


Shape layers

Render geographical shapes or custom shapes in the WinForms Map.

WinForms Map data.

Data

Bind shapefiles (.shp) and GeoJSON (.json) data to maps to render any geometric shape.

WinForms Map customizing shapes.

Customization

Customize the default style of a shape using the color, stroke, and thickness properties.

WinForms Map custom shapes support.

Custom shapes

Render any custom shape to represent building infrastructure, a sports stadium, plane or bus seat arrangements, and more.

WinForms Map sublayer support.

Sublayer

Load multiple shape files in a single map view. For example, add a sublayer over a main shape layer to view geographic features such as rivers, valleys, and cities.


Data labels

Easily annotate WinForms Map shapes with labels to improve the readability of a particular shape’s name. Customize the look and feel of default labels using font style, size, and color properties.

Heat map

Produce a heat map by customizing shape colors based on the underlying shape value.

WinForms Map with equal color mapping support.

Equal color mapping

Equal color mapping differentiates a shape’s fill color based on its underlying value and color. For example, apply colors to states based on their winning political candidates.

WinForms Map with range color mapping support.

Range color mapping

Apply colors to shapes by comparing their values with specified numeric ranges. For example, apply colors to states based on their population density.


Map annotations

Map annotations allow you to denote a place with symbols, like pins, or display a message at specific coordinates on a map.

WinForms Map with marker.

Annotation types

You can draw shapes like circles, diamonds, rectangles, and squares to highlight a place.

WinForms Map with custom marker.

Custom map annotation

Customize map annotations by adding images or any custom shape to highlight a location.


Map bubbles

Bubbles are used to add information to shapes, such as population density, land area, and more. They are rendered with various magnitudes and colors based on the underlying data values of the shapes.

WinForms Map with bubble color customization.

Color customization

Customize the default color of a bubble and its transparency using the fill and opacity properties.

WinForms Map with bubble size customization.

Size customization

Customize the minimum and maximum sizes of a bubble to enhance its readability.


User interactions

Interactive features, such as selecting, zooming, and panning, greatly enhance user experience.

Selection

Select or highlight an area or shape to center the view over that area on a map.

WinForms Map showing zooming and panning functionality.

Zooming and panning

Zooming allows users to get a closer look at a particular area, and panning allows them to move a map around to focus on different areas.

Tooltip

The tooltip control displays a pop-up with additional information about shapes, markers, and bubbles when the end user taps map elements.

    public partial class Form1 : Form
    {
        public Form1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();

            Maps mapsControl1 = new Maps();
            
            this.mapsControl1.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(880, 585);
            this.Controls.Add(this.mapsControl1);
            this.ClientSize = new System.Drawing.Size(880, 585);
            ShapeFileLayer shapeLayer = new ShapeFileLayer();
            shapeLayer.Uri = "world1.shp";
            this.mapsControl1.Layers.Add(shapeLayer);
        }

A single developer license for the Syncfusion Essential Studio for WinForms suite costs $995.00 USD, including one year of support and updates.

No, our 100+ WinForms controls, including Map, are not sold individually, only as a single package. However, we have competitively priced the product so it only costs a little bit more than what some other vendors charge for their Map alone. We have also found that, in our experience, our customers usually start off using one of our products and then expand to several products quickly, so we felt it was best to offer all 100+ WinForms controls for a flat fee of $995/developer. On top of this, we might be able to offer additional discounts based on currently active promotions. Please contact our sales team today to see if you qualify for any additional discounts.

No, this is a commercial product and requires a paid license. However, a free community license is also available for companies and individuals whose organizations have less than $1 million USD in annual gross revenue and five or fewer developers.

A good place to start would be our comprehensive getting started documentation.
