I've been using the Bing Maps Silverlight control and now want to switch to RadMap, given the upcoming deprecation of the Bing Sivlerlight control.
In reading the documentation for RadMap, it mentions a BingMapProvider (SOAP imagery service) or BingRestMapProvider (RESTful imagery service). That documentation seems to contradict your statement above that the BingMapProvider is based upon a REST services.
This seems significant because the SOAP Service will be deprecated in June 2017, according to Microsoft. I want to avoid converting to RadMap now and then having to make more changes again in June 2017.
So, when I create the object in C#, should I create BingMapProvider or a BingRestMapProvider?
