    $(function() {
        $("#vectorMap").dxVectorMap({
            layers: [{
                type: 'area',
                dataSource: DevExpress.viz.map.sources.world,
                label: {
                    enabled: true,
                    dataField: 'name'

            }]
        });
    });
  • Angular

    HTML
    <dx-vector-map>
        <dxi-layer
            type="area"
            [dataSource]="DevExpress.viz.map.sources.world">
            <dxo-label
                [enabled]="true"
                dataField="name">
            </dxo-label>
        </dxi-layer>
    </dx-vector-map>
  • AngularJS

    HTML
    <div dx-vector-map="{
        layers: [{
            type: 'area',
            dataSource: DevExpress.viz.map.sources.world,
            label: {
                enabled: true,
                dataField: 'name'
            }
        }]
    }"></div>
  • Knockout

    HTML
    <div data-bind="dxVectorMap: {
        layers: [{
            type: 'area',
            dataSource: DevExpress.viz.map.sources.world,
            label: {
                enabled: true,
                dataField: 'name'
            }
        }],
    }"></div>
  • ASP.NET MVC Wrappers

    Razor C#
    Razor VB
    @(Html.DevExtreme().VectorMap()
        .Layers(layers => {
            layers.Add()
                .DataSource(new JS("DevExpress.viz.map.sources.world"))
                .Label(l => l
                    .Enabled(true)
                    .DataField("name")
                );
        })
    )
    @(Html.DevExtreme().VectorMap() _
        .Layers(Sub(layers)
            layers.Add() _
                .DataSource(New JS("DevExpress.viz.map.sources.world")) _
                .Label(Sub(l)
                    l.Enabled(true) _
                        .DataField("name")
                End Sub)
        End Sub)
    )

Note that DevExtreme widgets require you to link the jQuery library to your application. If you use the Knockout or AngularJS approach, the Knockout or AngularJS library is also required. For detailed information on linking these libraries to your project, refer to the topics in the Installation section.
