To help the reader better interpret maps, developers should consider adding legends to their GIS apps. The AdornmentLayer APIs in Map Suite helps developers enhance their maps with legends, titles, directional arrows, logos, scale bars and other elements which helps the reader better understand the message the map is trying to convey. Adornments are in a fixed position, regardless of panning and can be added to your digital map or carried over to the print map. Map Suite’s extensibility also allows developers to extend the AdornmentLayer to create custom adornments if necessary.
Map Suite provides an easy to use API for creating legends. The adornment API is a Map Suite core API, so no matter what type of app you are building ThinkGeo has you covered. To get started developers can download the sample directly from NuGet here.
