Does Sharpmap v0.9 or v2 exposes any methods or interfaces for changing the schema of the feature data? Specifically, I want to merge a spreadsheet with the attribute table of a Shapefile (country data joined by ISO2 codes). Technically I can do this manually with spreadsheet editors but a programmatic approach would be lovely. From what I can tell, everything seems pretty well locked down. Dave edit: just to clarify, I intend on building a thematic map based on the new columns.

Ok.. If Sharpmap can't do it, does anyone have suggestions on a library for editing DBF files?  I know there is a dbf odbc driver but it requires installing something on the client machine and who knows if it supports writes.  Are there any C# dbf libs?

Hello tinsoldier,

here are some:

I'd go for DbfDotNet.
