I have MapPoint 2004 I need to do ethnic population comparisons between the 1990 and 2000 census - but MP2004 only has total population and total household data for 1990. How do I get the rest of the 1990 census data? I have considered purchasing an old copy of MP2000 which has the 1990 data - but the data might not be readable by MP2004. Any idea about how to get the 1990 data? Thanks

I am a newbie to MapPoint 2002, and I am trying to import client information from Excel into MapPoint (client name, company name, address). All of these clients are in the Denver, CO area. When I import, MapPoint says that it finds the location, and yet when I try to view the pinpoints I see only one pinpoint located in Kansas! Since all the addresses are in various cities in Colorado and MapPoint claims to have located them, why do I only get one pinpoint, and why in Kansas?

In using Optimization for a route, is there any way to have the software take into account that some stops are timed. For example: We have a circular route that repeats during the day. If we optimize, the software has the courier stopping at the same site in sequence, which is useless for us. Is there any programming that can be done to setup those stops that are timed and optimize the ones where time is less important?

I have a comma separated list of multiple routes. Each line in the list is a point. Each route has a starting location and ending location, and some routes have one or more waypoints, with a sequence specified in the list. The points are already pre-ordered, like so:
route A,start,123 my rd,anytown,CA
route a,end,456 my rd,anytown,CA
route b,start,789 yr rd,anytown,CA
etc.

I am writing a VB app to take this data, map it, and draw straight lines connecting all points in each route. The result would be multiple unique, nonconnecting lines, one for each route.

Is there a way in Mappoint 2002 to either
1. create/display multiple routes or a collection or routes on a single map?
2. When importing the list, have it imported in the order it is provided? Using .importdata to create the dataset, and .queryallrecords to create the recordset, when I walk the recordset using .movefirst and .movenext, the recordset is not in the order that the comma delimited list is in.

Thanks for any help anyone can provide!

Hi EB Can i use the Map point control features in my project. for e.g if you run the Mappoint.exe, goto Tools.

I am inserting the Map point control(OCX) on my form and now on click of the buttons, i want those features which are already provided by Mappoint control. so if i press "Measure Distance" button, it should give me the distance between the 2 places in miles on my Map Control.

I am wondering if anyone has built a COM add-in application or has written VB code that will query two sets of data in MapPoint 2002 and determine whether the locations of dataset 1 (imported address info from excel) are within a given radius of dataset 2 (also imported address info from excel) Would like to eventually create a form that accepts the following inputs: DATASET 1: user may select a dataset already imported to the current MapPoint file DATASET 2 same operation as dataset 1 RADIUS: the distance in miles from the data points within dataset 1 that will be used to find the data points within dataset 2. OUTPUT FILENAME: allows the user to specify the filename of a new excel file where the results of the query will be stored. I am guessing that the records from dataset 1 would have to be converted to lat/long in order to create the radius and capture the resulting pushpins from dataset 2?

When geocoding with MP2002 I have found when using Canadian Data, MP2002 does not seem to want to geocode to the address level and reverts to the postal code level. Even though the address was pointed to, the Geocoding engine seems to ignore the fact that address data at the street level is visable. However when re geocoding the data with the Postal code stripped out leaving street level information and city information MP2002 then proceeded to geocode to the city . Does MP2002 possess the ability to geocode to the street address level in Canada and if how so does this work? Also when looking for specific location the goeocoder misplaced the location and placed the address requested at the start node of the street. I wonder whether this is the result on not being able to include address information in the product. If so the product is very easy to use and displays data at the postal code layer which is very similar to the desire to geocode to the Zip Code level in the US. MapPoint 2002 has lots of promise,it has taken the mystery away from GIS and put some very powerful analytic tools in the hands of neophytes. It can only get better, and with the application development tools available for third party application developers, it may become the product of choice for the masses. Microsoft works on volume. Prices reflect volume and introduce spatial data analysis to untold new users who otherwise would have never seen their data because of price restrictions of data and software.

If I draw a closed shape around some pushpins, and if more than one type (ie dataset) of pushpin is within the closed shape, and then do Export to Excel, the resulting spreadsheet contains one worksheet per pushpin type. Is there any way to change that so that the Excel sheet is just a single list of pushpin data, instead of multiple lists? In general, how can I control more of what the spreadsheet looks like?
Answer

kurt w - March 10, 2002
If I have a dataset that is linked to a spreadsheet, is it possible to unlink it? My reason - I would like to update a spreadsheet, then update my map using the links between the datasets and the spreadsheet. Then, I would like to move some pushpins from one dataset to another, based on what I see on the map. Right now, because the datasets are linked to external data, I cant move a pushpin from one dataset to another. So, one solution would be to update my map using all the links, then Unlink the datasets, leaving me free to move individual pushpins from one data set to another.

I just learned about the Schedule Stop feature, that allows me to enter stop duration for each stop. Instead of entering duration one at a time for each stop, is there a way I can import stop durations as part of importing pushpin datasets from a MSExcel file? I.e. I would have stop duration as a data field to be imported, then if I used that pushpin in a route, the stop duration for that pushpin/stop would already be ready?

Stuart - March 1, 2002
As a newbie to both VB and Mappoint, I am gradually writing an application for my company. I have downloaded the utility to convert from OSGB co-ordinates to latitude / longitude, and it works fine. However, the "OSGB POS" window is displayed for every conversion I send to it from VB, which presumably slows things down as well as looking untidy! Is that right or have I installed it incorrectly? Or is there a way to disable the display of the box? Many thanks, Stuart

Hi, I'm looking for a software package that can give me a friendly interface to look-up addresses in a specific territory. There's a tight region of territory that I serve that cuts across zip codes covering 30 square miles. I'm wondering if Map Point has the ability for me to mark the territory on a map and then simply type in the address of a would-be customer to see if they're in my serving territory. This kind of thing is similiar to mapquest where you input the address and they'll point to the location on the map. Only this time, the map has a specific territory shaded. I would think that pizza delivery companies would find this useful to new customers online.

Answer

Zia - January 17, 2002
Requirement:

We are looking for a software program that would allow us to enter 15000 locations, then by typing in one location (street+city+state or zip), pull up a list of all locations within, say, a 5, 10 or 20 mile radius. The user should be able to enter the location and the radius on web page and would see a map of the location with nearby locations marked on it and a list of the same nearby locations.

Solution:

I used Mappoint to achieve this using the following process:
- I created a map and imported 15,000 locations into 2 datasets (pushpin sets.2 setsare required as it cannot import more than 10000 in one set).
- I wrote a DLL that connects to the Mappoint software, calls the FIndAddressResults() method to find the user entered location.
- It then calls QueryCircle() method on eash dataset to find all locations falling in the user provided radius. It takes the resultsets, calculates each location's distance to the user entered location and sorts the list.
- It then calls Union() method and GOTO() methods to zoom to the area with the locations searched and saves the map as an HTML page.
- It then displays the list to the locations found nearby to the user with the map image extracted from the saved HTML page.
- This DLL gets called from the ASP page which provides the user interface to enter the location to search and the radius.

By doing so, I was able to get results. But when I did a stress testing by making multiple request simultaneously (made 10 requests for testing purpose) to the web page, it seemed to slow down to an unacceptable extend. I saw 3-4 MapPoint.exe processess running and taking 100% of the CPU. This made the whole web site so slow that it took a few minutes to serve a web page on a T1 connection. Also the resulting locations and maps came up for all the requests but it took an average time of 2-3 minutes for it to provide the location results. This made the solution unacceptable.

Questions:

My question is, Did I do this right?
Is there a better way of implemention the solution which would make it work faster and not take over 100% of cpu?
Is this product recommended for use in such web related scenario?

After this I add a zipcode to territory North Zone USING TERRITORY MANAGER. Immediately after this I again query the dataset. Now, the recordset returned is EMPTY!

Is this possible with MapPoint ? I am using the full version of MapPoint 2002. I am about to attempt a programming project with VB & MapPoint. I will take a list of data from a sql database (name, zipcode) and create a territory. I will then programatically add Zipcodes to the territory from another table in the SQL database joined by "name" -> territory name . The map would then be stored and used as part of a Visually workflow via the mappoint control on VB Form. The map would also be functional by providing editing capibilities of the territory and would be required to save the "changed data" back to the SQL Database table. Looking at the Mappoint object model. I do not see a "Territory object" Nor do not see any functions that add or remove data from an existing territory. I do see two Functions LinkTerritories and ImportTerritories that appear to create new territories only. Am I missing something ? Thanks !

Ok, I've several questions.

1) If it's possible, how can I retrieve all points (lat/lon) that belong to the road network?
2) Again, if it's possible and from what I understood from my last question, how can I find a route between two points? What kind of struture will be the output? Does it contains what kind of roads are each segment?
3) Does anyone can share with me some similar code that does what I pretend?

Oh... And thanks for your feedback!

MapPoint 2002 seems to be missing the MSA/PMSA for Boston! I imported all my data (matching the records by zip code) and when I display it by Metroploitan Area MapPoint does not show any of the data for the Boston area MSA. It will show the data by zip, county, etc. Can anyone confirm that the MapPoint program does not recognize the Boston MSA/PMAS?

I have an Access database that sends address information to Mappoint to create a route and optimize it and return the optimized route back to Access to print a report from. The problem I am having is that Mappoint optimizes the route differently almost each time the report is ran with the same data. i.e., stop 2 will be stop 9 the next time. I optimize the route object and then calculate it. Is there anything I can do to assure I get the same route every time? Thanks in advance!

Brian Kneller - November 24, 2001
I am trying to write some code which mimicks the behaviour of clicking on a direction line in a calculated route, i.e. the map is zoomed to show a good view of this road segment in green, the turn is highlighted blue, a pushpin is placed at the turn location with the pop-up text being the turn instruction. I have tried the following code: Dim oMap As MapPoint.Map Dim oRte As MapPoint.Route Set oMap = GetObject(, "MapPoint.Application").ActiveMap Set oRte = oMap.ActiveRoute oRte.Waypoints.Add oMap.FindAddressResults(, "London", , ) (1) oRte.Waypoints.Add oMap.FindAddressResults(, "Birmingham", , ) (1) oRte.Calculate Dim i As Integer Dim loc As MapPoint.Location For i = 1 to oRte.Directions.Count loc := oRte.Directions.Item[i].Location loc.GoTo loc.Highlight = true MsgBox "Here is a turn" Next i This runs, but the behaviour is not as expected. The locations returned display larger sections of the route, and is centered on what seems an arbitary point, there is no highlighting, and no pushpin. Can anyone help with reproducing this behaviour. Thanks Brian

Desmond - November 23, 2001
I am using MapPoint Control in another ActiveX control, which is loaded by a web page. The following is the Terminate() method in the ActiveX, hoping to help it better unload the Mappoint Control, since I don't know how to signal it to unload Private Sub UserControl_Terminate() oMap.Saved = True Set oMap = Nothing End Sub However, if I close IE instead of go to another page, the Mappoint Control may be failed to unload itself. On Windows2000, this will leave an orphan MapPoint process running there forever, and on Window 98, it simply crush the OS. But if I move to another page, close browser after, say, 3 minutes, everything will be fine. So I guess it's because Mappoint needs time to unload but the container did wait. So, how to unload MappointControl explicitly? and how do I know if it is unloaded successfully, so I can kill myself safely ? Thanks a lot! Desmond

However, there are no icons diplaying numbers over 20, and for some of my maps I need to label as many as 50 unique points. Are there more numbered icons available in Mappoint? If not, can you suggest a source where I could import numbered icons at a similar size? (16x16)

My problem is that after the import completes, MapPoint refuses to display the shaded areas for a zoom level that will display the entire U.S. (it will only display the shaded areas for a zoom level no greater than 225 miles). Is there any way to display shaded area maps for the entire U.S. when importing files with this many zip codes? If not, do future versions of the program allow you to do this?

Alex - September 11, 2001
As it stands now, most locations that I feed MapPoint have fully resolved addresses but there are always those for which I have only a general idea of the area for any given reason - wasn't written down, not posted, or MapPoint will not recognize what is a proper address. For those, I play pin the tail on the MapPoint, and extract out the Longitude/Latitude using one of the available hacks to get the location in the right ball park. The problem comes when it's time to import the data in mass. If I map both the L/L & Address fields, it matches only for L/L. I have to reimport the same list twice using different field mapping settings to get all of the data onto the map. This still doesn't cut it however because, outside of being a PITA, the data cannot be analyzed as a whole. MapPoint will not recognize, for painfully obvious reasons I guess, pins from different sets when matched with different settings, as compatible for analysis. If I could find a way to collapse different data sets into one after matching, perhaps that would do. Much better, it would seem, would be to have the program sort it out on the front end.

I am using the Great Britain version of MappPoint2000. I have various datasets (as Acess Databases and comma separated text files) georeferenced to GB Ordnance Survey grid references. When I tried to create pushpin sets by importing the textfile data into MapPoint2000 I encountered some problems which I have not been able to overcome (the on-line help is very scant on detail on data importing):- 1. The import wizard only allows you to define one column as the location. The georeferencing of my datasets is stored as 6 figure national grid reference in 2 separate fields, one for the easting and one for the northing (ie. XXXXXX, YYYYYY) - this is normal practice with GIS data. 2. Undaunted I persevered and rejigged one of my datasets and combined the easting and northing into one field in the form of XXXXXX YYYYYY and re-imported it. It sort of of recognised it as OS data as it put it off the SW coast of Britain near the national grid origin (ie. 0,0) but obviosly did not gecognise it as 6 figure OS grid reference. It also only mapped 3 out of 106 records, but didn't tell me about the unmapped ones! My question therefore is :- 1. What is the proper procedure for importing data that is georeferenced to GB Ordnance Survey grid references stored as separate 6 figure eastings and northings? 2. Is the procedure different (better?) for MapPoint2002? Regards Angus PS I am an independant GIS consultant based in Edinburgh, Scotland and I am in the process of creating training courses in MapPoint (deatils from www.calmap.co.uk) - I noticed that one of the previous questions was from somebody looking for UK based MapPoint training.

When the user clicks on the MP2K map, the 'Select a Place' listbox is sometimes displayed. When an item in this list is clicked, MP2K then displays an outlined text label beneath a small circle icon.

Can someone show please show some VB6 code to make this behavior occur in VB6 with the MP2K ActiveX control?

At first I thought Shapes.AddTextbox would do it but the presentation is not the same. Incremental programing is truly taken to a new level with MP.

As a developer of emergency services mission critical applications, one of the most important points to our customers regarding MapPoint is the frequency of updates to the underlying mapbase especially as there appears to be no way to update (or to easily supplement the map data for long term road closures, new roads, etc) the underlaying maps. Given that MS say that the maps are currently less then 1 year out of date (see previous MS replies), what will be the frequency of updates and costs (or will we have to wait for each new release of MapPoint and effectively re-purchase the product) ? Or will the "updates" be available from alternative sources ?

I'm now using MapPoint 2001 and my MapPoint 2002 upgrade is on its way. My question has to do with the demographics/mapping data that is supplied with the program. I have been importing zip codes from an Access database and several of them are not mappable. Although this is partly because some of them are non-geographic, it is also because some of them are new zipcodes. As you know, the USPS issues new zipcode data every two months. I'm hoping that 2002 will have more up-to-date data than 2001. Even then, it will be out of date in a few months. Will I ever be able to update the mapping functionality of MapPoint software so that it can keep up and be able to map new zipcodes? If not, could you suggest any workarounds?

Mappoint looks to be a good product, but pin maps fail to produce a good thermic map because you do not know how many data records are in each pin.

We are using MapPoint 2001 but hope you can still help.

We have an Excel spreadsheet which lists hospitals that use and don't use our products (single column with a yes or no for use or don't use). As a hospital starts to use our products, we want to change the column entry from a no to a yes and want to automatically "refresh" the map to change the color of a pushpin from a "no" color to a "yes" color. Often there are several hospitals in each city, so pushpins seem to be the best representation. We realize we can accomplish the desired end result by filtering the Excel Worksheet, creating two separate worksheets for hospitals that use and don't our products each time after modifying the info, then importing each with a different color pushpin and recreating a new map each time we do updates. It seems that there should be more of an automated way to do this, perhaps by somehow using the "data ranges" which quite frankly I don't understand. I would be very grateful for your help.

Thank you!

We have already managed to automate it from a remote Visual Basic application, but want to have it inside our own Visual Basic application (for example access the objects directly from buttons which is inside the same form as Mappoint activeX component..). It actually can seem like that Microsoft have tried to prevent the user from do this task due to different reasons.. or maybe I'm wrong ?

Maybe there exist some possible developers edition of Microsoft 2001 (maybe not mentioned in Microsofts publications/papers) which can make such type of embeding possible? What's the price and other conditions if such option do exist? Hope someone understands what I really mean and that someone possibly can help in some ways :-) !

As a GIS professional I'm would like to see future releases of MP2K support links to images and other documents like MSWord, URL's etc. So, you click on a pushpin and associated with that point is a document ie, picture of a house, word doc, webpage, etc. which pops up for the user to see what links are attached to this feature.
