Overview

The WPF 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, legends, bubbles, and color mapping.

Built-in support for external imagery services, such as Bing Maps and OpenStreetMap, is used to visualize satellite, aerial, street map, and other imagery tiles without using shapefiles. Apart from Bing Maps and OpenStreetMap, you can also render maps from other map providers such as Google Maps and TomTom.

I am really thankful for the wonderful set of controls for WPF. I was able to deliver things on time and could focus on core business logic rather than control development.
