Hi,

In my WPF MVVM solution, I'm using Telerik RadMap control with the free ArcGIS Provider to show maps,

I also use Telerik InformationLayer control to show extra data coming from my ViewModel, and it's all working well.

Now I have a paid account at ESRI, and after I log in to my account I can see and use on the ESRI website some extra Feature Layers like "Electric Dataset" and more.

I see ESRI does have an API for .NET to be able to display a map and add a feature layer, and they also show an example of how to do it by using their own WPF esri:MapView control.

But the problem is that I don't want to replace my current RadMap control with another new control because I'm worried about all my existing InformationLayers complexity, and I probably would need to code them again especially to match the new control.

My question is, Is there is a way I could combine using RadMap control with a paid ESRI ArcGIS provider?

 

Thanks in advance for your answers

Hello Efi,

The RadMap control has two mechanisms for drawing elements into the viewport. The first one is the tiled map provider which allows you to download images for the current viewport. The second mechanism is the map layers (InformationLayer and VisualizationLayer) which allows you to load .shp or .kml shape files that are parsed tomap shape objects. The layers also allow you to render any other objects (like FrameworkElement) positioned using map coordinates (longitude and latitude).

If the paid ArcGIS features layer provides a web services that allows you to download images representing the map tiles, you can implement a custom tiled map provider

If the paid ArcGIS layer provides some kind of shape file ,you can load it using one of the map shape readers.

I hope this information helps.
