Hi there, is there any way to overlay your own custom layer to the map, typically a raster layer that would e.g. display demographic information or any other form of raster data in a transparent way such that you can see the Virtual Earth data as well as your own colorized raster on top? I guess one could set up his own web server with tiles being served with such information and ask somehow the Virtual Earth server to superimpose those, but in a WinForms application this does not make much sense and I would be very much interested in a way to add such layer on-the-fly in this control directly. Let me know if I'm dreaming some impossibility functionality here ;-); if not I would much appreciate any pointer you may have that could help me achieve this! And just to clarify if needed, an example of what I am after can be found there:
