Developer Getting Started Guide
The guide below will help get you started with the basics of dragging and dropping controls as well as controlling symbology. Any references to MapWindow should be replaced with DotSpatial. The libraries have been recently refactored into the modular
layout shown to the right, so it will take time to update our documentation to cover all the new modules. Areas for which some documentation is available or under development appear in color. Areas which are not yet documented are gray.

The design architecture of DotSpatial follows two paradigms. The first is to separate the graphical user interfaces from the business logic. The second is to use a larger number of modules to increase code reusability, and allow access to parts
of the framework without requiring the entire thing. However, great energy is being spent to ensure the libraries work as well together as if they were all part of the same framework.
