GoogleMap API is probably the most well known (web based) map api that is currently in use. Basically, it provides a javascript interface to be used at any platform. Thus, having basic javascript knowledge is enought to use&handle this API. However, those who are not familiar with handling javascript (or generally client scripting) are tend to use&handle components&objects that provide the target functionality. In the case of using this API on some web pages, it seemed to me more proper to create a web control that I could handle on server side. For that reason I implemented a drag and drop style ASP.NET web control. VS2005 and .NET 2.0 is used as development platform but –of course- the control can be used at higher platforms.
