    - copy from http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/wpf/map/tiled-layer.aspx, but I didn't notice I created the thread in WPF instead of Silverlight. 

    Hello,

    Is it possible to have a tiled layer mechanism as you can do for providers? I currently have a bing map provider, but want to overlay them with a tiled source, ie images served from a webservice according to coordinates and zoomlevel.
    So in my case it's not possible to use another provider, as I still need to see the bing maps underneath the (semitransparent) tiled images.
    I read in this post  that multiple layered tile providers were not possible, but is planned in a future release. So has it been released? :)

    In Bing maps this was possible using a Microsoft.Maps.MapControl.LocationRectTileSource.
    I see i Telerik a class TilesVisualizationLayer, but it says it's for internal use, and I can't find an example of how to use it?

    Is this scenario possible in Telerik maps, and if so: could you point me to an example to analyse?

    Thank you,
    Tom

    Hi Tom,

    The information regarding RadMap for Silverlight and RadMap for WPF in this case is the same. I updated the product of this thread as you had selected RadMap for WPF.

    For your convenience, I will give you the information here as well:

    The forum post that you provided a link to discusses multiple layered tile providers. As you can see in the link that Andrey Murzov provided, the feature has already been implemented. You can check the following online resources for additional information:
    1. http://demos.telerik.com/silverlight/#Map/MultipleTileLayers
    2. http://www.telerik.com/help/silverlight/radmap-howto-custom-provider.html
    3. http://www.telerik.com/help/silverlight/radmap-features-providers.html

    As I do not have all the details of your scenario, I would recommend that you check the help topics on VisualizationLayer as well.

    Hello,

    I was able to do my task using multiple providers (I wasn't aware of being able to), works like a charm! 
    So first add the bing provider, then add the custom tiled layer which I implemented using the links you provided.

    Is there a way to set a Zindex on the layers and/or providers? So we can decide what layer/provider should be on top. Or is it purely the order the layers/providers are added to the map control (index) that will decide the order of visibility? 

    Thank you,
    Tom

    Hello Tom,

    Unfortunately, with the current version of RadMap for Silverlight, you cannot specify the ZIndex of the layers. The layers are arranged by the order of providers in the Providers collection.
