    I have looked at your RadMap demos using shape files and the priciple is exactly what i require for my application. Can you recommend an easy application to use to create shape files?

    The original tool to create and edit shape files is ArcGIS. There are several other tools available which you can find in Internet. As I know few of our clients use the MapWindows GIS to create shape files with success. You just need to save files using projection which is supported currently by RadMap.

    Currently Geospatial data can be represented using the following projections which are supported by the map control:
    - The Mercator projection EPSG:4326 (default) that refers to WGS84 as (latitude, longitude) pair coordinates in degrees
    - The OSGB-1936 projection which also known as EPSG:27700
    - The EPSG:900913 projection which also known as EPSG:3857 and Pseudo-Mercator projection that refers to WGS84 as (latitude, longitude) pair coordinates in meters
