Hi list,

I am trying to write my c# application using dotSpatial. I downloaded the getting started guide (Developer's Corner_DotSpatial.pdf ) from ( and tried to follow instructions. But I think there are some pictures that are referring to using MapWindow.dll rather than dotSpatial. However, I downloaded DotSpatial 1.2, DotSpatial 1.2, DotSpatial 1.2 plugin, and and unzip all of them. In the instruction it is asked to add a .net component called DotSpatial.Desktop.dll, but this does not exist at all in any of those downloaded files. Would someone kindly help me on this or direct me to a link that illustrates on how to use dotSpatial?

The Getting Started Guide was written in 2009 and is out of date. Visit the DotSpatial Tutorials page.
