Why Choose Map Suite

All the reasons why Map Suite is the right mapping SDK for your toolbox.

"The ThinkGeo Map Control is just great! The best part is that this control is well-integrated into the .NET Framework, which gave us a whole new dimension to work with, not to mention add onto."

Making GIS Easy for Developers

A complete GIS suite

Complete GIS Suite

You no longer have to search for disparate libraries like routing and geocoding and their dependencies. We've developed an exhaustive collection of GIS utilities to help you build your applications more efficiently. ThinkGeo offers the entire GIS package so you can use what you need.

Share your code across Map Suite Products with ease

Code is Portable Across Map Suite Products

Do you have a Map Suite Desktop Edition app that you now want to deploy to the web? You don't have to worry about rewriting all of your code. Our products share the same core components, allowing you to reuse most of the code from your original application in your new application so that you just have to write the platform-specific portions.

Full-range GIS and image format support

Data-Agnostic

With our products, you're not limited to a handful of proprietary or arcane data formats. In fact, we make it easy to use any of the formats from our huge list of supported formats, from file-based, to image-based and even spatial databases. What's more, working across formats is effortless thanks to a shared interface.
