MapDotNet UX support for visualization is based on tile-based mapping. Although the UX web services can serve up map images for traditional non-tiled mapping applications, the WPF and Silverlight RIM controls are tile-based. The maps displayed in Studio UX are also tile-based. This form of map visualization is like the popular consumer mapping application Bing Maps for Enterprise. Tile-based mapping has its pros and cons. For many applications the pros outweigh the cons.
