Adding custom layers to static map

Hello,

   The company for which I work has recently made a decision to base our map making needs on MapQuest.  I have been tasked with developing static maps represented one of our clients marketing area.  The marketing area is based on census tract geography.  We are a paying MapQuest customer but not at the enterprise level.  Is there a way that we can add customer layers to a static map.  I know that in the past (many years ago) I have used MapQuest static map to map zip codes, but I do not see a way to do this now.  Is it possible to do what is wanted using static maps?  Obviously, using leaflet interactive maps can be created with custom layers using GeoJson or KML among other shape formats.  The issue would there become how can I output an image format programatically.  Is there a way to gain access to the bitmap?  One other question I have is, do you support using a programming language such as C# in addition to javascript?  I have seen an old announcement (2008) that says that you do but I can find no reference to C# at all in the documentation.

Thanks,

-Tom

You can add a polygon to the map but large complicated shapes will have a huge url. There is no method to add shapes from the api side. All shapes come from the customer side.   There are no server-side agents. There are JavaScript, Android, and iOS sdks, but no C#, Java, .NET or other server-side tools for the apis. All of those server-side agents can make calls directly to the api.

Thanks for the quick response

Thanks for the quick response, Brian.  Do you know of any way to output a MapQuest interactive map to an image output format?
