Many tasks on RadMap require smooth zooming for the better user experience. For example, floor plans or facility layouts. Default zoom increments are too large for those tasks. We should provide a way to make zoom smooth while keeping zoom level as integer value.
Here maps has the ability to render map tiles with traffic. They include a freemium tier unlike some of the others.
WMTS is a standard protocol for delivery of tiles map data - see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_Map_Tile_Service It should be possible to write code to understand pretty much any service complying with the specification. It would be good if RadMap could be extended to enable it to understand the WMTS specification and allow WMTS data to be used.
Implement OpenStreetMap search provider. Similar to BingSearchProvider (http://docs.telerik.com/devtools/wpf/controls/radmap/features/search). Currently , to implement location search with OpenStreetMap provider, you can use the Nominatim API: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Nominatim
Currently, when you use the BingRestMapProvider and the BingRestSearchLocationRequest the found locations are formatted using the System.Text.Encoding.Default encoding. This way if the found location contains unsupported characters they won't be shown properly. Introduce a property for the BingRestSearchLocationRequest class that allows you to set the Encoding.
Currently, you can achieve this by using RotateTransform and clipping the container that holds the RadMap control. For example: <Grid RenderTransformOrigin="0.5,0.5" Width="500" Height="500"> <Grid.RenderTransform> <RotateTransform Angle="45" /> </Grid.RenderTransform> <Grid.Clip> <EllipseGeometry Center="250,250" RadiusX="250" RadiusY="250" /> </Grid.Clip> <telerik:RadMap ZoomLevel="6" Center="37, -120"> <telerik:RadMap.Provider> <telerik:OpenStreetMapProvider /> </telerik:RadMap.Provider> </telerik:RadMap> </Grid>
Add a way to control the pan / zoom animation duration. Currently the properties which control these animation durations are private in MultiScaleImage.cs
Expose a property that allows you to get the user state in the SearchLocationError event arguments (BingRestSearchLocationErrorEventArgs). Currently, only the SearchLocationCompleted event args give this information. You can work this around using the following approach: You can create a custom BingRestMapProvider and override its OnSearchRequestCompleted() method. There you can get the UserData from the DownloadStringCompletedEventArgs. Check the attached project.
The UriImageProvider will support loading the geotiff image header to find the location boundaries. When the geotiff image contains this information then the GeoBounds of the UriImageProvider will be specified automatically.
It should be possible to rotate camera in the birds eye mode of the Bing map provider.
Currently MapShapeReader can't be used to load KMZ files.
Currently shape readers (KML, ESRI shape, SQL Geospatial) don't provide information about unsupported elements in sequence. They should either return list of the detected unsupported elements or throw €œUnsupported€ exception.
The RadMap.Providers property should support databinding to a collection of MapProviderBase in a ViewModel.
