Hi everyone.

I want to know can this lib be used in windows phone 7?

Hello Harut,

please have a look at Paul den Dulk's MapUI project. It is SharpMap based and supposedly supports WindowsPhone.

Thanks a lot FObermaier for your answer. 


Have you tried it?
Do you know can I use MapUI to work with *.osm files in offline mode??

The functionality of Mapsui on Windows Phone is limited. There are few data providers and the current rendering implementation is slow. Also look at this discussion:

It does not work with *.osm files. Does SharpMap or any other C# OSS project?

Can't find yet.

OsmScout works with them but it is for c++.
Nothing for c#. 

Can You tell me please to which format i have to convert *.osm files to work with them and be able to work in offline mode?

Thanks a lot for your answers

Have you looked at xivk's OSM project (

No provider for SharpMap, but maybe a headstart.

I looked at that and already don't remember to which of needed requirements it doesn't correspond.
May be it could not be used for windows phone. I am not sure
