Using SQL server 2008 R2.
I created an SSRS report that uses ESRI map to show customer distribution on the map of united states. I want to do some branding by layering my company logo on the top left corner of this map. How can I lay my logo image on top of the map. I tried embedding the image, but it shows up on the top left corner outside the map region.

Thanks.

I took a look around the different sites that I use and most of them run into the same problem, a watermark doesn't work with charts (bar/map/whatever).

On an MSDN blog they mentioned this approach which might work. Create a background with the image and make all the objects in the report as having a transparent background. I tried a simple chart on my dev system with this approach and it worked nicely.
