MSN MapPoint Launched

Yesterday, Microsoft launched MSN MapPoint, clearly positioned as an alternative to AOL's site. MSN MapPoint uses the same MapPoint .NET Web Service that other MSN channels like Carpoint and HomeAdvisor started using a while back. Microsoft’s game plan is slowly becoming clear. The work of the MapPoint team is now being offered to users in new, high-visibility ways. It not only provides a great showcase for the net .NET technology, but also allows the MapPoint team to plug MapPoint 2002 and Streets & Trips 2002 as off-line clients using the same core technology. Although neither MapPoint .NET nor MSN MapPoint replace MapPoint 2002 in any way, shape or form, this increased attention can only be good news for MapPoint users.

Read the MSN MapPoint launch press release. Some good coverage can be found at CNN and as well as Directions Magazine.
