Dear all
I am living in Egypt and I am working with Reporting service SQL SERVER 2008 R2.
I want to add Maps to my report builder, and I don’t know how to do this.
I found ASP.NET control for Google Maps and I found BING maps too.
Is there a way to add Google maps or Bing maps in my report.
Please advice.
Thanks

you need to use the maps that come with sql 2008 r2

From the toolbar you should see the maps label

here is a simple way i found to do this based on your link.

Create an image and set up the image to be an external link.

then set the source to the google image

this is an image and not a map so there is no lables unless you put them in your self. So you will need to add a texbox to the report that will act like a label for you image.
