RadMap lets you load maps from different Web Map Tile Services by using a MapLayer
with Type=Tile. This demo shows a sample configuration for a few free providers that you can see
in the code-behind. You can switch between the different map providers through the Map Tile Service dropdown.
The main properties you need to set for the MapLayer are:
Type should be set to Tile
UrlTemplate should link the desired service in the proper format. You
can find examples in the Value properties of the Map Tile Service dropdown.
- The Attribution property is used to provide a copyright notice about
the map service owners.
You can find more details on the configuration options of the map layer in the
Tile Layers help article.
The services used to provide the maps must conform to the
OSGeo specifications. You
can read more about them in the following resources:
Important: to use the Bing provider, you need a valid key from Microsoft. The one used for this demo is valid only for the Telerik domain. Instructions on obtaining one for your application are provided in the Create a Bing Map key article from Microsoft.
