    I'm using the RadMap component with the OpenStreetMapProvider.
    I wanted to know if it is possibile to know the name of the street given a point on the map.

    Thx in advance

    Hi Davide,

    The Bing Map Services provide search API, Geocode API, Reversed Geocode which we demonstrate in our Search and Geocode demos. I am not sure whether OpenStreet have similar Apis and we don't have such demos with OpenStreetMaps.
    However, the good news is that BingGeocodeProvider can be used without BingProvider and you will be able to set OpenStreetProvider. I implemented this in the attached project based on our Geocode Demo. Just Double click on a street in the Map and the StreetNames below the clicked point will be shown in a MessageBoxes.

    I hope this will help you proceed further.
