I'm using Sharpmap to create a GIS application. I'm trying to get a small overview map on top of my map so it gives an idea what part of the map is being viewed.

Is there a simple/implemented way of doing this? Or do I need to add another map and interact with this map on every change?

Just need a push in the right direction.

Thank you in advanced!

You need to setup another map and handle MapCenterChanged and MapZoomChanged events.
