Google Maps

Is there a way to use the Google Maps API in C-Sharp?

I've found very little when seaching the web. I don't know JavaScript very
well and I thought doing it in C-Sharp would be easier.

Thank you for the help.

Gumbatman,

You should be able to embed a WebBrowser control in your app and then
access the javascript model through the control (it will take some work
however) to get the information you need, or show the map the way you wish.
You will need knowledge of the Google Maps API, obviously:

Hi,

You will have to code in javacript anyways.

Even if you use MS's version you need to know javascript.

Thank you all for the information.

I guess I should have been a little more specific.

I figured out how to do some of the basic JavaScript stuff with Google's
API. But I am trying to see what is the best way if I am going to pass in a
bunch (50 - 100) locations from a database. I've done a few manually, but
using a database makes much more sense to me. Is making a UserControl the
best way to go?

There are a number of Google Map API implementations in .NET languages. Here
is just one that uses ASP.NET with the Geocoder API, you can find many more:

I have not used Google's but MS's virtual Earth and the easiest way is to
construct an array and pass it to the page, later you can call a function in
Javascript and it will display the array in the map.

I'd also turn to the e-mail list.
