    satellite data

    allow the export and overlay of, say, one city of the aerial photos that microsoft already has on terraserver. Obviously you can't store 3,000GB of all aerial maps on one CD.

    Then allow that satellite layer to toggle on or off.

    Re: Additional Data in MapPoint 2003

    I would like to see the data for Iceland updated. The 1998 tunnel under the "Fjord of Whales" is not available yet; so travellers from Reykjavík to Akranes are either directed to the no longer existing ferry, or the long around the fjord.

    Just my wish...

    It would be really useful if MP 2003 gave acess to a broader range of coloured pushpins (without the time consuming process of creating custom ones!) Also allowing more than 8 sets of data on a multple pushpin map would save me hours spent splitting data in other applications.

    Lat and Lon info

    seconding an earlier post for the ability to export the lat & Lon data from a specific address. If MapPoint can plot them why can't we get them. this is critical in routing for deliveries and service call indusry as MP's current capabilities are sorley lacking in what seems to me a basic capability.

    New countries

    I'd prefer Microsoft to finish mapping entirely every country than starting to map some new countries.
    Anyways, if I had to add any new countries I'd be interrested in Eastern European countries.

    Many wishs one master

    There is a long list of wishes here. Microsoft could never fill this. To fill it they need help, 3D party developers. But 3D party developer can't do very much when the programming interface is extremely limited and crippled. If they can crack the hood (a bit, like other office apps) developers will come like crazy, MapInfo and Arcview are painful to use and expensive, and MS has better integration with other office applications, there is a huge demand going unfilled...microsoft, you are leaving money on the table....

    As usual, I nice long featurerequest list from me
    • Include house names as well as house numbers - a street full of named houses willjust return the name of the street for all of them
      Fix the Swansea/Cork ferry bug
      Allow multiple editions to be installed side-by-side and integrate with each other - e.g. NA and Europe installed simultaneously allows you to route-plan from London to Seattle
      Allow animated merge mapping - for data that changes with time
      Add more places of interest - I currently can't find the Royal Festival Hall in London (despite the fact that in the locality, I can find three ATMs)
      Ability to show/hide houses, so you don't have to guess where to click
      Ability to zoom in further
      Integration with MapPoint.net online to get up-to-date maps and/or satellite photos


    That's all I can think of for now...[/list]
