    Hi,

    I think it'd be useful to have a control that would display a google/mapquest or whatever map in a panel, styled or not, and have a locations collection.

    Each location has a lat/long, description field (html code or text). The description field could use a CSS Class to style the html inside it and so on. The description contents would be in a pop-up bubble that could be shown or not by default and the marker could be clicked to show/hide the bubble.

    Each time a web site is developed, should the company/client have a location, it would be useful to be able to drop a RadMap control, specify which map interface to use (google/mapquest,etc.), add location(s) and the control would generate and set the starting position for the map including zoomlevel, either map/satellite/topography and so on.

    This could be really useful when tied to a "find closest location to you" scenario where all locations could be added to a map and you could have links that would change the focus point of the map window.

    What do you think?

    Hello Robin,

    Thank you for the suggestion. At point I cannot tell when or if we could provide such control but of course if there are more customers looking for such functionality in their application, we will consider adding such product in our portfolio.

    Hi guys,

    Thank you for your feedback. It will be channeled to our devteam for further consideration. We will appreciate if you outline the features that you will find useful for such a component which surpass those provided by Google Maps and the Google Maps API. 

    Note that currently we do not have plans to add a mapping component to our ASP.NET AJAX suite, however you may consider integrating our Silverlight RadMap control in AJAX application as illustrated in this blog entry.

    Greetings,

    Hello Sebastian,
    Very good news.

    For a first version I only need to be able to:
    • display a map,  from a physical address
    • display a map from latitude and longitude
    • add a pin to it
    • display the adresse in a popup over that pin

    In the next version having the possibility to display a map to my user, let him click on it and as a result get the address and coordinates from where he clicked would be really nice.

    Any idea of a timeframe for an eventual release?

    Looking forward to it :)

    John.

    Hello John,

    Thank you for sharing your opinion. Still I do not see anything in the list that is not provided by the Google Maps control and its public API - am I leaving something out? I also believe that these features are supported by our Silverlight map component.

    I need some of the same things but some additional ones.  Everything I need will only be used in Silverlight.

    1. I need to be able to put a pin on the map at a certain location.
    2. Give directions from one pin to another pin.
    3. Be able to zoom in from the country level to the street level.
    4. I too need to display the address for each pin when clicked as well as additional information.
    5. Also, I need the user to have the ability to pan once zoomed in to the street level.

    Ha!
    I thought I did not get your question correctly...
    So maybe I did get the whole thing wrong...

    Then all that is missing would be a GoogleMapProvider, right?

    Your control seems to support all those features but using a bingprovider, right?
    It would be enought for me to have a googlemap provider right now... Maybe it exists already?

    Then, finding you features missing from the google maps API is not easy, I do not know the API enought for that...

    I'm looking for methods to calculate distance between two points taking in account the fact that the earth is not flat...
    Or the possibility to follow an object on a map from whom I have the coordinates...
    But I won't need those features in my project before several months and also maybe they exists in the existing google API...

    Let's what other need ;)
    John.

    Basically yes.  A GoogleMapProvider would be excellent.
