Just to render the map in windows software. Any help and case demos of c# is much appreciate.

One problem is that there is no single "the map". OpenStreetMap is just lots and lots of data, and there are many different ways of representing it, with the tile-based mechanism you see on just one of them. The first questions to ask would be whether you want to display OSM data as a series of pre-rendered tiles (e.g. PNG graphics) or as dots and lines drawn "on the fly", and whether you've already done something similar to this, but not using OSM data?

If the answer to the first part is that you want to render vector graphics, and the answer to the second part is that you've not done much with C# before, then I'd probably start a bit further back before looking at OpenStreetMap.

It's also worth mentioning that I'm not aware of much OSM work done with C# (though a search reveals this previous question, which might provide some pointers). For generic C# help, you're probably better asking at stackoverflow or
