  • Any of those would be viable depending on what data you have available. If you have an image then lay it over the map. If you have path data then draw it programmatically. Which is best depends on your specific needs and resources and how the app is being written.

    If you can give more specific information about what sort of help you need and what sort of app you are writing we can direct you to an appropriate forum. Are you writing a Metro style app? If so, are you using Html/JavaScript? Xaml/.Net? Xaml/C++? DirectX?
