Thenamespace provides types for creating and managing maps, rendering additional features on to maps, as well as functions such as geocoding, points-of-interest (PoI) and spatial searches.
Create maps with the Map class (for ASP.NET and other server applications) or the MapCtrl class (for Window's Forms) both of which implement the IMap Interface - a country / engine independent map interface with support for zooming. Change the appearance of your maps with the MapStyle class; map styles can be created with a Chameleon script using Verizon Connect GeoBase WorkBench or a simple text editor.
Locations (latitude, longitude) on maps are described with the LatLon structure which can be used to add RouteStops, and other objects to maps. Custom objects such as the PushPin, BalloonPushPin and DirectionalPushPin location markers can be displayed on the map by implementing the IMapRenderer interface. To display multiple objects it is necessary to use a RendererList. Rendered objects that need to respond to mouse clicks should implement the IMapMouseHandler interface. The MapMouseEventsHandler may be used to simplify this procedure.
The Address class represents a physical address retrieved from Reverse GeoCoding. Reverse GeoCoding is the process of resolving a location to an Address. An Address may contain such information as street number, street name, city, county and state. An Address is returned by a call to ReverseGeoCode(LatLon). The GeocodeAddress class represents a LatLon and a street address. A GeocodeAddress is returned as the result of forward geocoding. Forward geocoding is the conversion of a string address to a street address containing detailed location information. GeoBase also provides a DrillDownGeoCoder class that performs a GeoCode by progressively selecting a smaller set of regions, narrowing down the search. It has the ability to query the location of a street, Street address, postcode, region, city, state or country.
A Street class represents a physical street. A Street is a collection of StreetLinks, that is, a continuous set of links that have a common name and region. Each street has a name and an array of points through which the street passes. Use the StreetData class to query a street, and specifically the location of the street and all the addresses on the street.
The Poi (point of interest) class represents a location that contains some structure, facility or service that may be of special interest. An array of Pois may be returned by a DataQuery. Use the PoiRenderer to render a Poi (see PoiType for examples) on an IMap.
