Raster Map Support

Microsoft Bing Maps and OpenStreetMaps

The DevExpress WinForms Map Control supports Bing Maps and its distinct map types: Area (photos of the Earth's surface), Road (Light, Gray, and Dark street views), and Hybrid (combination of both images and schemes).

If you'd prefer a non-commercial mapping option, our WinForms Map Control fully supports the OpenStreetMap format. You can obtain these maps from either the official OSM foundation website or from an alternative image tile provider.

Vector Map Support

Leverage the power of vector elements

The DevExpress WinForms Map control can render any vector data on its map surface. This can include shapes, pictures loaded from an external image file or an in-memory data source (IEnumerable, Dataset, etc.) and other custom drawn shapes. The Map control supports the following file formats:

  • Shapefile
  • KML / KMZ
  • SVG

GIS Data Providers

Embed worldwide GIS data into WinForms apps

Our Map control fully supports Bing Geocode, Search, Route, and Elevation Services as well as Geocode and Search from OpenStreetMap. As you'd expect, the predefined GIS data providers we've built for Microsoft Bing and OpenStreetMap allow you to obtain and communicate information to users based on a map location. For instance, you can determine what is located at a specific map coordinate or create a route between two or more waypoints. And of course, you are free to create your own information provider as needs dictate.
