Hi, just curious to know if I can get DotSpatial to work on an android phone?

I think using MonoDroid DotSpatial can be runned

http://android.xamarin.com/

But is not free.

If someone tries this, I am curious how it goes. There is a free trial version of MonoDroid that would probably do for some testing. It works only with the Android emulator, not on real devices.

Some of the libraries should not be that hard to get working.

I don't know whether there would be a way to use GDAL, so grid format support might be very limited.

User interface and map display parts of DotSpatial would need to be re-implemented, because Mono for Android does not include Windows.Forms.

I am curious too but I have not enough time.

Also for Web Component I think would be interesting create a version of Map that render on a Bitmap, not on a Form...
