I want to display on a map a pin point for each customer.  I have a collection of customer locations, it can run into thousands. Can the pint points be added by databinding?  Is there some sample code to achieve this.? 

Thanks
Sumith

Hi Sumith Jayasuriya,

The information layer allows the data binding. Please, take a look to the DataBinding example and to the data binding help topic:
http://demos.telerik.com/silverlight/#Map/DataBinding
http://www.telerik.com/help/silverlight/map-data-binding.html

But I would recommend using the dynamic layer to loading points by zoom level and region.
It is possible to have a lot of elements on the map. If they are displayed at the same time, then the rendering performance can be insufficient.
Please, see the Using Dynamic Layer topic of our documentation and the Items Virtualization example.

I just put together a MVVM Sample that shows how to bind an InformationLayer to a collection.

Also, in your case if you want to show info for the coordinates on a MouseOver, via a tooltip.  This sample with show you how to do that as well. 

I'm using custom Markers but you can change the collection to PinPoints and modify your code accordingly.
