Help required in exploring the world of MapWinGIS

Aug 16, 2012 at 8:17 AM

Hi Everyone,

First off all i would like to congratulate MapWinGIS team for the excellent piece of work they have done here. I am new in GIS and my knowledge is somewhere near zero, But my interest in GIS is very high. With the help of community like MapwinGIS and other I am able to play with the small codes now.

With the help of some tutorials and code sample I managed to build a small win form application using C# where i am able to load the .shp file and display the data in it.

But now i want to move further to the next level. I want to explore the it more. While using this control i am able to do what i find in the tutorials or sample code, but I have no idea what else Can/Can't this tool do.

I would like to know more about the classes and properties of this wonderful tool.

Any help will be a great help.

Thanks & Regards

Hi Harry,

You might consider writing a plug-in instead of creating a custom application.
That plug-in will run within MapWindow.exe and you will have all capabilities of the application:

  • Zooming
  • Projections
  • Project
  • Etc.
