I went through the Image Tutorial in and was able to load image and get the output.

But I need to load the image without use of world file format, since I need to load image dynamically.

Also if that is not possible, how do I load image(say base station image) instead of points in countries. Eg: I need to load images in the point which points on Australia and Africa. How it can be done?

Thanks in advance

It isn't clear from your question - do you just want to use an image to represent the location or as a map? – iant Sep 12 '12 at 7:52
