    Altitude property

    Does anyone know why the documentation says that the Altitude property for maps is a double but it can only be set to integers? The following produce the same map:

    Code:
    oMap.Altitude = 1.8
    and
    oMap.Altitude = 2

    Try it for larger map sizes? I wonder if you are below the limit on how far it will zoom in. What does it do for 1?

    Altitude property

    It doesn't seam to matter. Try this:

    Code:
    oMap.Altitude = 10
    oMap.Altitude = oMap.Altitude + 0.2
    MsgBox oMap.Altitude

    You will see "10" in the message box. This implies to me that Altitude is an integer not a double as stated in the documentation.
