I don't know of any 3rd. party library for this specific purpose, but, I think a lot of what you may do will depend on the nature of the whatever-objects you need to overlay on top of the map to define your "points of interest." Can you describe those objects further: are they icons ? graphic files ? Do they function as Controls, meaning: if you hover over them, click on them, etc., some action is performed ?

And, the solution will also depend on what facilities you provide for viewing the underlying map: will the user be able to pan, zoom ? I would guess you'd implement that which requires re-calculation of which overlay objects will appear, and where they will appear.

You can certainly create transparent Forms in WinForms and carefully position them over some base Form (or Panel, or other ContainerControl, in a base Form) that contains you map as a BackGroundImage. Those transparent Forms can, of course, have objects in them that are not transparent.

If you want to look further into doing this yourself in C#, then please post a more complete specification here.

good luck, Bill

"What Turing gave us for the first time (and without Turing you just couldn't do any of this) is he gave us a way of thinking about and taking seriously and thinking in a disciplined way about phenomena that have, as I like to say, trillions of moving parts.

Until the late 20th century, nobody knew how to take seriously a machine with a trillion moving parts. It's just mind-boggling." Daniel C. Dennett
