Hello,

Thanks.

Hi hitechtm -

Assuming that you have the data you need, it sounds to me that given a coordinate in the data set, you'd like to return the features at that coordinate and look up an attribute (like country name) in that feature set.

You can find one example of how to do this in the DemoWinForm example download. The current latest source is here: http://www.codeplex.com/SharpMap/SourceControl/DownloadSourceCode.aspx?changeSetId=20750.
