Tutorial :Free Map components For Flex?



Question:

I need to create a country map, is there any free map component available in Flex?


Solution:1

you could try interfacing with yahoo maps (http://developer.yahoo.com/flash/maps/) or Google maps (http://code.google.com/apis/maps/documentation/flash/tutorial-flex.html).


Solution:2

Depending on what type of maps you are looking for Degrafa has some real cool components. http://code.google.com/p/degrafa/.

Out of the answers from bkildow I second google maps. The yahoo renderer is slow as molasses.


Solution:3

I've done a bit of work with the Google library and was impressed by its power and overall ease.

Some advantages are:

  • Google keeps the maps reasonably up to date
  • Most users are familiar with the way Google maps works as well as being comforted by the look and feel
  • It will do geocoding and road segments for you
  • You can overlay your own polygons and points
  • The Google groups (and the moderator Pam Fox) are very supportive

Cheers
