if it is, kindly let me know... some links/resources or anything that might help.

you can just use microsoft map control for silverlight and reuse the gmap.net cache

check demo project: Testing\Silverlight\SilverlightMapFusion.Web

reuse gmap.net cache... what do you mean by that. Shed some light please.
Also explain:
why GMap.NET.Core and GMap.NET.WindowsPresentation
are present in SilverlightMapFusion.Web

because it host gmap.net, sl application with custom tilesource gets tiles from SilverlightMapFusion.Web via http interface of gmap.net

it's possible to use any web map interface, like LeafletJS/etc, you can test it in winforms demo, cache submenu

you can even make map provider for the tilehost on the local network, therefore having single cache for the network users without additional mysql/etc servers... but it's automatic if you use web applications

Hi guys!
I 've been using radioman's great Desktop tool for a while now, but now the customers and the market is leading everybody to work over a web site.
I have a couple of projects already working with gmaps.net, but now I would like to "Port" them to asp.net.
It would be great If anyone with ASP.NET Skill would post a more complete sample on how to use gmaps.net in a web site.

I keep trying to have something but here I must admit I am a bit lost.

Thank you all in advance.
Regards
