VS 2013 Template and maps

Feb 10, 2015 at 3:31 PM
hello;
i'm new to this kind of concepts, i'm testing and using DotSpatial 1.7 with visual studio 2013 community edition.
first i could not find any template for VS2013.
second, i followed a tutorial on how to use the windows form control but have no idea on how to load a map , have we to provide some kind of file or from online ?

thank you for the good job done here.
