MapForums Newsletter - April Recap
Learn More about MapPointThis edition of the newsletter includes summary of activity on MapForums during the month of April.

In MapPoint and Virtual Earth news, we would encourage you to check out the really cool new 3D "version 2" cities in Virtual Earth. See the video in Recent News on MP2Kmag. Also on MP2Kmag, see the new article by Richard Marsden, A Simple Add-in for MapPoint API Beginners.

In the forum, we've added a section for "Other Mapping Platforms". Also, we will be upgrading the forum with a number of new features next week.

Also, look for lots of exciting things to start happening in the Map Elves Wiki including a new Company and Product directory. Let us know if you need help with creating an account and to get started with contributing and editing content on the Wiki.

Happy Mapping!
