I was wondering if there was a way to use a map that I have stored on an ESRI server in a telerik radMap. I am not very familiar with the radMap control so any help would be appreciated. I have found the documentation on using a radMap with Shapefiles, but as with a lot of documentation, it was not very helpful. Thank you.

Did you ever figure this out? –  blah238 Feb 9 '13 at 22:26

I am assuming that by ESRI server you mean ArcGIS Server. From the documentation only Bing and OpenStreetMap are supported: http://www.telerik.com/help/wpf/radmap-overview.html

However, it appears that a custom provider can be created to use ArcGIS Server map service.


So if you are using a cached service then you would want to create a TileProvider and if you are using a dynamic map service then you should want to create an ImageProvider.

The only other option it seems is to export your data as a shapefile or KML file and load that in the control.


It appears that a UriImageProvider is provided that may work, but I do not know how the request is sent to the server for the bounding box, but you could point it the map service and include the export to png and it may work.

So whenever I used arcGIS I was able to get access to my maps through localhost:6080/arcgis/rest/services/CalvertCity_Test_Labels/… that URL... I just don't understand how I would use that URL based on their documentation. –  JLott Jan 10 '13 at 18:50
So in the custom provider you want to override the initialize method and pass a uri to an image. So navigate to your endpoint and then click on export map. You can choose how to export it. Look at this example: server.arcgisonline.com/ArcGIS/rest/services/World_Physical_Map/… –  Jamie Jan 10 '13 at 20:01
