Vector Items

Vector items allow you to show different shapes such as pushpins, bubbles, pie charts, lines, and etc. on a map. The Map Control uses vector layers to store vector items. The Vector Data section contains guides that describe how to provide vector data to a map and customize vector items’ appearance.
