    • Layer - rendering the map usingMap Tile Service (e.g. OpenStreetMap);

    • Bing - rendering the map using the Bing service (same as the Tile type, but with simplified setup for Bing’s service);

    • Shape - layer on which additional shapes can be drawn based on collection of GeoJSON objects;

    • Marker - defined by location data and indicates a point of interest based on some criteria.

  • Navigator - allows the user to pan through the map;

  • Zoom - allows the user to zoom-in and zoom-out the map;

  • Marker Tooltip - developer-defined text that is shown on mouse click or mouse over of a marker;

  • Attribution - developer-defined footer element that can show additional information to the user, e.g. a copyright notice.
