Map Image Data

The MapControl uses the ImageLayer to display an image from one of the imagery services. Different Data Providers allow you to obtain image data from different map services.

To use one of the available data providers, assign it to the ImageLayer.DataProvider property.

Various types of predefined map image data providers are supported by the Map control.

To learn more about supported data provider types, refer to one of the following topics.

In addition, it is possible to create a custom image tile data provider. To do this, create a MapDataProviderBase class descendant and define a custom image source for it. This image tile source should be derived from MapTileSourceBase and provide a way to retrieve image.

For more information on how to implement a custom image tile map provider, see the How to: Load Image Tiles from a Local Directory example.
