Hi guys,

I have developed in C# for a couple of years now, and wondering how I get started with using the combination af client apps (WPF/forms) and maps integrated inside (Bing maps, google maps etc.)??

- Do I need to find a WebService provider which can provide me with a WDSL link?
- Can I host the webservice on my own server?
- Does it need to be installed on clients?
- Or should I include it as a DLL libary on my apps??

I have searched around, but it can be a little hard to know where to start. Google Maps have a quiet good documentation, but most examples are in JSON or other web langauges, which I doesn't use in my situation since I'm developing client apps. Can any1 enlight me how I get a solid start with map integration?

Thanks for your links.
But its kinda hard for me to relate the, AJAX, JS etc. examples to WPF programming, since the app structure is rather different, and I ain't that experienced in yet :(

Another thing is, that I can't figures how ( gets the
[code]protected GMap gMap;[/code]
reference? It ain't described if it is a imported DLL or a WebReference and so on, which is hard for me to figure out since I'm still this inexperienced in implementing services such as GMap.
I'm still missing the reference basics?

In my case I have a WPF solution where the map will be shown in a WebBrowser element.
