I'm looking for a free mapping / gis project with a C# interface, preferably written in C# and open source. Does such a project exist?

If so, are there any that do not require connecting to a map server and will allow me to distribute map tiles on disc?

Is MapWindow a C# or .NET open source GIS? – Mapperz Mar 26 '12 at 21:06

Dotspatial, SharpMap and NetTopologySuite are all built in C#. I'm not totally sure about the map tiles functionality but SharpMap might do this, otherwise you could just use GDAL for this...
