Hi,

Has anyone tried using ESRI shape files as a datasource to populate the shapes layer?  We have a considerable number of geographical boundaries and point locations stored in ESRI shape files and would like to see if there is a reasonably simple way to use them to populate the shapes layer in the Telerik map control.

HiRaymond,

The Shape layer of the RadMap is bind-able only to data-source created upon GeoJSON structure. 

The only reasonable approach is converting the ESRI shape files to GeoJSON formated *.json files on the server and bind the layer of the Map.

There are plenty of discussions and materials related  to conversion of Spatial data to GeoJSON by searching the web. These ones provide some basic information on the matter:

I kind of figured that would be the answer.  I just wanted to make sure there wasn't a more direct approach before I started down the conversion route.

Thanks,

Ray
