  • Various ways to load shapefiles—You can load the shapefiles from a stream, from a file added as embedded resource or a file located on the device,etc.

  • Pan and Zoom—The Map provides pan and zoom functionality that will help you interact with the view and inspect your data. You can choose between only pan, only zoom or both through InteractionMode property.

  • Shape Labels—You can show a label for each shape in the Map control through the LabelAttributeName property of the ShapefileLayer instance.

  • Selection—The control supports single and multiple selection of shapes to help you draw attention on specific areas.
