    Dears at Telerik,

    I have Esri files that represent different layers in a map (*.shp).  I assume that the RadMap control will be able to draw the map, but would it be possible to povide the following features:
    - Scale: define a scale (i.e. 1:5000) and zoom to that scale
    - Extents: get the current extents of the visible part of the map
    - Projection: determine the type of projection the RadMap uses

    Best regards

    Hi Nasser,

    Onto your questions:
    • Such functionality is not supported -- currently you can zoom either through the ZoomBar with predefined zoom steps (World, State, Region, City, Neigborhood), or mouse input, or programmatically by setting RadMap.ZoomLevel property.
    • You can use the RadMap.LocationRect property to extract the desired information.
    • Currently only Mercator projection is supported, however, for Q1 2011 we are planning to introduce additional projections for scenarios that use EmptyMapProvider (note that Bing Maps will still support only Mercator as this is a limitation imposed by the MS imagery service).

    All the best,
    the Telerik team
