MapForums Newsletter - January/February, 2009 Recap
Learn More about MapPointThe MapPoint Team at Microsoft is beginning the planning phase for the next version of MapPoint.

For what I believe is the first time, they are conducting a public survey to solicit input and help them prioritize what new features or enhancements should be developed for the next version. Imagine, if enough people suggest it, you may finally be able to turn off all geographic labels (cities, states, etc.) by using a particular map setting (e.g. set Map Font to No Labels). I think there's a number of relatively easy things for them to enhance with the product, but you have to let them know! Click here to start the survey or see below for more details and information about the incentive!

Need more MapPoint licenses or have not upgraded yet? Both MapPoint 2009 North America and Europe are now shipping, see links below for purchase.
