I am new to the SharpMap and just create a simple page to show the map. it seems dose not work.

no error message but the image cannot be shown on the web page.

dose anyone can help me to figure it out?


here is the code:

        SharpMap.Map myMap = new SharpMap.Map(new Size(400, 300));
        myMap.BackColor = Color.White; //Set background
        myMap.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(300, 200); //Set output size

        SharpMap.Layers.GdalRasterLayer testlayer = new SharpMap.Layers.GdalRasterLayer("test", "C:\\Downloads\\sharpmap-57305\\Trunk\\DemoWebSite\\london.jpg");

        System.Drawing.Image img = myMap.GetMap();
        string imgID = Caching.InsertIntoCache(1, img);
        imgMap.ImageUrl = "getmap.aspx?ID=" + HttpUtility.UrlEncode(imgID);


thanks a lot

Hi Phil, make sure the getmap.aspx url is mapped appropriately - see the httpHandlers section of web.config in the demo project and create an equivalent in your project.. hth jd

Hi johndiss,

Thanks for your reply. But I think I already add 

      <add verb="*" path="GetMap.aspx" type="SharpMap.Web.HttpHandler,SharpMap"/>

to the web.config file.

i am using

System.Drawing.Image img = myMap.GetMap();
        img.Save("c:\\ddd.jpg", System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Jpeg);

to save the image to the hard disk and the image is black.

do you have any suggestions

Hi johndiss

another quick question, is it possible that i just show a normal jpg file as a map using sharpmap?

Thanks  lot

Hi Phil, I haven't tried but I would assume you could as long as the jpeg was georeferenced - but this would still be done via GDAL hth jd
