Hi all,

sorry for the rookie question.
I need to create a route on a map with a set of latitude and longitudes retrieved from GPS device.
I tried to use either bing or google map apis, however, it allows only 10 waypoint entries, hence, I am looking for the alternatives.

Wondering if SharpMap has the capability to draw a simple route map like I described without the need of the shape file?

Thanks all in advance.

Are you looking for a routing-service sharpmap is not the right tool for you, if you have a calculated route and want i drawn on a map, sharpmap can do that for you.

Thank you, petlof.
no, I am not looking for route service.
I've already have everything that I wanted by extracted data from a gps device.
I just need to plot these coordinates (lat + long.) I extracted on the map to display the route on my app.

I managed to be able to plot couple coordinates on the mapbox, However, I was not able to get an actual map to display. It is just a blank background.
My guess is, SharpMap itself does not provide any actual map images, is that correct?
I need to figure out a way to use some sort of free service which would allow me to render the actual maps on to the mapbox?

See step 5 in the tutorial that adds OpenStreetMap as background..
