toxic - Where can I find a map control for Delphi?




stackoverflow reputation hack (2)

I am trying to build an option in a application that let user see a map. This map must be editable, and tag enabled. It should also be possible to see sub regions in different colors, and highlight the one under the mouse.


TGlobe is good one, but hasn't updated since 2004, If you need more than showing a map, and build a GIS like application I suggest use one of these:

  1. TatukGIS (very powerful GIS Components and writing as Native VCL).
  2. CartoVCL.
  3. MapObjects (the Leading GIS Company, but the components are ActiveX).

There used to be a component named TGlobe, which I've never used. The website has not been up dated since 2009, and it is no longer available as of 2013.

  • TGlobe 5 is a VCL component for Delphi 5, 6, 7, 2005 plus CBuilder 5 and 6.
  • TGlobe displays a Globe of the Earth which can be rotated, panned and zoomed in realtime. The globe contains map data in the form of Point, Lines and Polygons.
  • TGlobe organises map data into Layers. These layers can be nested together to build up a hierachy of related layers.
  • TGlobe can switch between the 3D spherical view of the earth and Cartesian, Mercator or user defined projections.
