Cities maps


Is it possible to have on the world map, also the main cities? I could found the capitals file in the sample, but I cannot locate the location from where I can download a a file with cities.

Re: Cities maps

There is the WorldMap template for AspMap at http://www.vdstech.com/aspmap-templates.aspx. It includes the places.shp file in the App_Data/WorldMap directory, it contains about 8000 populated places. The same data is available at http://www.naturalearthdata.com/

Another file with about 250,000 locations is available here. The locations were extracted from the freely available OpenStreetMap planet file.
