Hi, I am new to dotSpatial. I need to implement a specific scenario and I didn't find out a way yet after going through the tutorials.

Here's the scenario:

In an existing system, I have many geocoded addresses stored in database (adressess with specific latitude/longitude). I would like to use dotSpatial to implement a function that will

- receive a lat/long as parameter

-the function will query a map polygon layer (after loading a shapefile shp)

-find where in the map the lat/long is located

-the function should return information store in the map (attribute table), for example the state/province and other geographic information of the location passed as parameter.

The code associated with this function should be very similar to the code found under the button "Identify" in the MapWindow6 app. I dont have access to this code.

Any help to implement this scenario would be appreciated. Thanks
