ESRI tile provider?

Dec 17, 2008 at 3:22 PM
Has anyone tried to use DeepEarth with the ESRI map server?  We're using ESRI products now but the look and feel of the DeepEarth control is much nicer and having the flexibility of using DeepEarth is very appealing.  It seems like the way to do this would be to create a new TileProvider for this but before I started down this path I'd ask if anyone else had done this.  Are there issues that you've run into?

If this hasn't been done yet, is there a quick list of tasks that need to be done to add this functionality?  If I do this would it be worth adding back into this project?

ESRI = WMS correct?
there is a WMS TileLayer but the projecttion is not quite the same, there is actualy a bunch of posts for this in the discussions

This is something that was definitely in the back of my mind.  I have a use for the same thing and will definitely incorporate ESRI services (not WMS dotnetnoobie) into the control, but we'll use their (ESRI's) approach that has already been set forth in their R&D lab.
