Using MapPoint in a Routing Application Part 3 - Lessons Learned
this final installment of a three part article, Doug Popken discusses
"lessons learned" and provides insights into obtaining the time zone,
obtaining optimal routes, and programming an application to work with
both MapPoint North America and Europe.
"To compute correct ETA information for route stops, Route Factory
Spreadsheet needs to determine the correct time zone for each location
because a route may cross time zones. The time zone information is not
directly available programmatically in MapPoint. In the book by Chandu
Thota, “MapPoint in .NET”, a time zone determination algorithm is
provided that searches the MapPoint FindResults objects at a given
location for the string, “GMT” to derive the information. Frankly, we
could never get this algorithm to work in MapPoint 2010. In addition,
for the purposes of getting the correct ETA, we also wanted to know
whether or not a given location observes Daylight Savings Time."

Using MPMileCharter to create Mileage Charts with Microsoft MapPoint
Marsden writes about how MPMileCharter (formerly MileCharter) can be
used to compute a matrix of distances between pushpins and pushpins
sets. A major re-write was recently released as MPMileCharter 3.0.
"This article describes our popular MPMileCharter product. After being
on the market for over six years, Winwaed Software Technology LLC
recently released a major new version "MPMileCharter 3.0". This
represents a major rewrite for the .NET platform, allowing a smoother
and more responsive user interface, and enabling support for future
versions of Windows. MPMileCharter 3 includes a number of new features.
The most significant is the support for text file outputs. Microsoft
Excel continues to be supported, but MPMileCharter can also write
mileage charts to text files separated by commas, semi-colons, or tabs."
