The control has built-in navigation elements, supports animated zooming, element highlighting and so much more... Don't wait - try the DXMap Demo and see it in action now!

The WPF Map Control can use Bing Maps™ web service from Microsoft®. This service provides three different map types: area (photos of the Earth's surface), road (street view) and hybrid (combination of both images and schemes).

In addition, our map control supports the popular OpenStreetMap format. You can obtain maps in this format either from the official OSM foundation website, or from one of the alternative image tile providers.

Support for Vector Maps and Drawing Custom Shapes

In addition to raster layers, which are designed to display image tiles obtained from popular map providers, the WPF Map Control can depict any vector data on its surface. This can be shapes of any kind, or pictures loaded from an external image file, or some other custom drawing.

The WPF Map Control can read data from Shapefile and KML formats. To help shape contours, the Map Control also loads supplementary information provided in Shapefiles and KML and can display this information in tooltips for corresponding shapes.
