This post concludes our tutorial introducing SharpMap and how to use it in a mapping application. We were planning to explore it in some more depth by demonstrating some additional functionality, but we are working on another project that will be discussed in the near future. In short, SharpMap has tremendous potential as a lightweight component for adding mapping capabilities to desktop and web applications.
Our sample application’s source code is available to download below. It includes everything needed to compile and run the application using Visual C# Express. The SharpMap library, included in the download, is released under the GNU Lesser General Public License. For more information on that, see here.
