    Exclamation How to use Google maps with ESRI Silverlight APIs

    Hello,

    What is the way do such a web app ??? http://gis.moh.gov.sa/publichealthma...healthmap.aspx

    I am searching in how to use google maps with ESRI silverlight APIs, i found an article for Mr. Rex Hansen talking about that it is not legal and can be done only using Google Static Maps.

    The article URL: http://rexdotnet.blogspot.com/2010/0...lverlight.html

    In the same time i found an website using google maps with ESRI Silverlight controls, URL: http://gis.moh.gov.sa/publichealthma...healthmap.aspx

    It's really not legal for directly using google maps' tile images in a third party app, including our Silverlight API.
    However, technically speaking you're possible to do this job easily by extending the TiledMapServiceLayer class, please refer: http://help.arcgis.com/en/webapi/sil...viceLayer.html
    If you are not interesting in the details, and just want to see the result in your Silverlight app, technically, you can try Portable Basemap Server:
    http://www.arcgis.com/home/item.html...ac9aed52747552
    It's provided a REST service url of google maps and this can be directly using in ArcGIS client api, such as ArcGISTiledMapServiceLayer.
