SharpMap Buffer

I am trying to create a buffer from a point but the second line is throwing an Exception.
Exception Message: "Not implemented Exception" ............... yes, very nice...

// New Point
SharpMap.Geometries.Point sharpPt = new SharpMap.Geometries.Point(-42.234987, -22.234987);

// Creates the Buffer
SharpMap.Geometries.Geometry sharpGeom = sharpPt.Buffer(2.0);

What I am doing wrong?

Thanks in advance

Hi vsfortunato, You aren't doing anything wrong as such, the method is just not implemented (at least not in 0.9/1.x). You can accomplish what you want using NTS  but it may involve converting between native SharpMap and NTS geometry types.
You can get NTS from Use either the trunk or the 1.7.3 RC2 inaries.
In SharpMap v2 topological operations are supported natively.
