In both SharpMap and Mapsui it is possible to combine the BruTile layer with other layers. This other layer could be a WMS but you have to make sure that the image that the WMS returns is semi transparent.

Hi Paul,

Thanks for the Quick reply.

Do you have any example of it? My requirement is to create mapserver map using DLL's.

var map = new SharpMap.Map(new System.Drawing.Size(700, 700));
                //--> Get background           
                var osmLayer = new TileLayer(new OsmTileSource(), "OSM");

I have one sharpmap layer with me, I want to create a semi transparent layer of map server over it.

could you please help me out,I am wondering how I can do this.

thanks for the help.
