Forgot to mention, i've got the (free) vector world map from here

http://www.webresourcesdepot.com/free-vector-world-maps-collection/

The output is Adobe .ai format, converted to Canvas Paths using Expression Design...

If i can only [like the image tiles!] zoom-in and zoom-out the canvas [containing the country paths] my problem would be solved!!

Please Help...

 

Thanks,

Gopi

Do you need it to render as a vector? Or can you make a really large raster?

Vector has the ability to allow you to change/animate at runtime but needs more rendering grunt. Example here:

Raster simply needs you to export your vector as something very big and then chop into tiles, I highly recommend the free MapCruncher to do this:

The format it uses is Virtual Earth (now Bing), we support this out of the box as an overlay or base layer.

John,

Cool link, the thematic-overlay comes ... this close to solving our needs, except when i download and run the sample, i cannot switch the label in the "Road" Mode.. We need the plain map to start with.. and the country highlight on mouse over would work great for us...

In fact there is no access to the Labels Propery, except it shows up under Aerial mode.. Can u please help?

Thanks,

Gopi
