First of all thanks for this wonderful and useful project.

Due to legal issues It seems that I can't use Google map or bing as map providers to my winform c# application.

I want to use OpenStreetMap - how can I display all names on map in English.

It shows every country in it's native languages, I prefer to show it in English.


How can I do that?

hm.. you can try CloudMade, they allow customization of the tiles, i don't know about languages, but you can check it out ;}

Thanks for the quick replay.

If I use the GMapProviders.CloudMadeMap, how can I direct it to a cutomMade map I've created?

copy CloudMadeMap class to CloudMadeMapMy, change id guid, the name, and style id
