World Map with Custom Marker Positions- ASP.NET


I'm looking for some suggestions as to how I could implement a World Map with custom positioned markers. My client would like a world map that represents the locations of his Licensees.
I have been provided with the following xml as the data source for the map.
<Licensee id="1">
<Continent>Africa</Continent>
<Brand>All</Brand>
<CompanyName>ABC Industries PLC</CompanyName>
<Country>Nigeria</Country>
<xRef>123</xRef> <!-- does not exist -->
<yRef>123</yRef> <!-- does not exist -->
Above is an example of 1 Licensee in the xml. The xRef and yRef data does not exist yet. My first idea was to make use of the ASP.NET image library which could overlay a marker for each Licensee onto a world map.
It would read the co-ordinates from xRef/yRef fields - these would actually reflect the positioning of the marker on the image (eg xRef = 0, yRef = 0 means very top left corner of the world map).
The client has requested a 'managed' solution, so that when he adds more licensees to the xml the new licensees will appear on the world map, hence why I need to programmatically generate these map markers.
The client is 'ok' with the fact that when he adds a new Licensee he will have trial/error the exact positioning of the marker (pixel offset).
I just wanted to know if anyone else has a better idea before I start working on this. Ideally we would like to avoid flash.
It is quite likely we will dump the xml into a database and provide a front end for the client.
Use google maps.
The following article will help you with that.
