Creating a moving map

P: n/a
Hi All

I have a requirement to create a window in which I can place a moving map.
I also probably need to create the data points that go onto the map -
airports, navigation aids etc. The whole thing would be based on latitude
and longitude. I need to be able to react to a right click on the map and
capture the co-ordinates of the point. The area of the map will be bigger
than the window so I am going to need to generate the map window as a small
window on a much larger area.

I have no idea where to start - if anyone can point me in the right
direction it would be much appreciated

i've wrote something like that and used Microsoft Mappoint

which comes with a very good description of the classes.
