    I'm using an older version. Do the new versions have built-in support for the new (?) imagerySet values? If not, how would I add them? I've used my own or inherited versions of OSM classes, but the Bing classes are more complex and have more levels of inheritance. Below is the documentation for the static map, but I don't know if this applies to Tiles, too.

    Aerial – Aerial imagery.
    AerialWithLabels –Aerial imagery with a road overlay.
    CanvasDark - A dark version of the road maps.
    CanvasLight - A lighter version of the road maps which also has some of the details such as hill shading disabled.
    CanvasGray - A grayscale version of the road maps.
    Road – Roads without additional imagery.

    Hi Jason,

    The RadMap control has a built-in map tiles provider that works with the Bing REST map services. You read more about this in the BingRestMapProvider help article. Currently we support only the Aerial, AerialWithLabels, Road and BirdsEye modes. However, I logged a feature request to include also the CanvasDark/Light/Gray modes. Additionally, I updated your Telerik points as a small gesture of gratitude for bringing the new modes to our attention.

    If you want to display the modes that are not supported (the Canvas ones), you can create a custom map provider and implement custom logic that gets the tiles you want to display. You can check the HowToImplementCustomMapProvider SDK example.
