Newbie looking for General Guidance

I'm new to all this stuff and was hoping the community to give me a few rough pointers regarding the problem I'm trying to solve.

I'd like to manually assign "regions" to a city map.  The regions are polygons that I will create manually.  I'd then like to the determine which of the "regions" a given X,Y coordinate falls within.

Is this something that SharpMap can help me with, or am I barking up the wrong tree?

A version 2.0 of this app would allow the user to create those polygons on the map by simply clicking various points, but this can come after.

Hi skbach, SharpMap 0.9 in conjunction with Net Topology Suite (NTS) will give you everything you need to accomplish both these goals. SharpMap for the rendering, NTS for the spatial analysis. hth jd
