    For those who are interested in creating addons which have a map based GUI you might want to look at SharpMap - http://www.codeplex.com/Wiki/View.aspx?ProjectName=SharpMap .

    Thanks for posting Jon, this is interesting. Do you know if it also supports editing of the data that is displayed? I have not found out about that yet.

    I think so - it is possible to create layers. I guess if the shapes available don't work then it should be possible to add more. I've looked at it a couple of times but not gotten the time yet to dig into it in any detail

    Very nice! Always on the lookout for this kind of stuff.

    I had played a while back with the Piccolo toolkit for .NET found here: http://www.cs.umd.edu/hcil/jazz/index.shtml but it's general purpose and didn't have a GIS component. The nice thing about that platform is that on Windows it's tied to DirectX for hardware based rendering.

    Cheers,

    Etienne Martin

    Thanks for the heads up on Piccolo :) I had heard of it but not really looked at it.
