MindFusion.Mapping component provides you with a rich set of features for displaying and customizing any type of map.
You have a variety of options to make the map look exactly as you wish it - you can change the color scheme, add decoration images and bubbles at exact locations, assign labels to map elements. The font of the labels is customizable and you can load the labels automatically from the ESRI Shapefile. The decoration bubble has customizable font, fill, border and label.
