The DevExpress VCL Map Control allows you to embed multi-layered maps into your VCL applications, be it raster maps provided by popular web mapping resources (like Bing Maps™ or OpenStreetMap), vector maps built with elements stored in map files, or a combination of both. You can add image and text overlays and pinpoint specific locations on your map with indicators of your choice. With a comprehensive set of customization options, built-in navigation elements and animation support, the DevExpress VCL Map Control helps you create interactive map interfaces with ease.

High-Quality Raster Maps from Industry Leaders: DevExpres VCL Map Control

The VCL 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).

Our map control also 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 Shapes and Custom Elements

In addition to raster layers, which are designed to display image tiles obtained from popular map providers, the VCL Map Control can depict vector shapes of any kind and custom elements on its surface. Custom elements can include text labels and pictures loaded from an external image file.

The VCL Map Control can read data from the KML (Keyhole Markup Language) format and render it on a map.

To make your solution easier to use and more responsive, the VCL Map Control provides a set of built-in user interface elements. These elements include Scroll Buttons, the Zoom Track Bar, Coordinates and Scale Panels.

With these UI elements, your end-users can move a map in any direction, zoom it in or out, and see current map information.

Unrivaled End-User Experience: DevExpres VCL Map Control
Unrivaled End-User Experience

The professional and elegant solutions you can create with the VCL Map Control are a result of features such as animated zooming and the speed with which map areas load and render.

Vector elements support hot-tracking and selection. These two features enable end-users to select a portion of a map and quickly view specific details about it.

Important Licensing Information: Usage of the VCL Map Control does not confer any license to use data from a map provider. You are responsible for following any licensing requirements set forth by the map provider, including obtaining a developer and/or run-time license if required. DevExpress strongly recommends reviewing the following Terms of Use for each map provider.
