This project is based on the JXMapViewer component of SwingX-WS.

The project was hosted at, but has been discontinued. We extracted the JXMapViewer part from the latest SwingX-WS version available and continue developing it.

The JXMapViewer Tutorial by Joshua Marinacci provided a good overview over the functionality of the component, which is now gone from but available on Please have a look at the examples section in addition.
