C1Maps(or any other mapping tool) uses the Internet to pull tiles from different urls. Map components are basically viewers and you can use them with any tile source. So, what if the computer running a Map app is not connected to the web? Obviously the map control won't load tiles in this case.
With ComponentOne's new Maps for WPF you get a viewing container control, C1Maps, for online maps. C1Maps provides smooth zooming, panning and mapping between screen and geographical coordinates. It can display map tiles from various sources, including Microsoft Live MapsTM or it can import geographic image files (KML). Then you can display various elements on top of the map layer positioned to specific geographic coordinates. Use the Items Layer for displaying arbitrary items like buttons, charts and labels. Use the Vector Layer for displaying vector data, like lines and polygons, whose vertices are geographically positioned. There's also the Virtual Layer which can be used for a virtualized display of items, meaning only items in view are downloaded from the server.
