    Aquiring and installing Athens MapPoint data?

    We are MapPoint users but not yet MapPoint developers, though we are Microsoft Partners. We have licenses for MapPoint NorthAmerica and are looking at expanding our services into the European market. We recently purchased evaluation copies of MapPoint.EU for use in Europe in the near future. Unfortunately we need the data for Athens, Greece, which is not included in the base MapPoint 2005 Europe package. The following web site indicates that this data is now available but I can't find any purchase or download sites:

    http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;en-us;884771

    "MapPoint.EU data sourceNew base maps have been added to the MapPoint.EU data source. These base maps support the following capabilities:
    * Athens, Greece: The Athens base map supports finding locations and addresses. This base map also supports routing in the Athens metropolitan area."

    Is it possible to purchase and download the Athens data? Can it be brought into MapPoint NA or only into MapPoint EU? What about the MapPoint EU trial version (the only version available in NA for purchase)?

    Thank you for your time, consideration and reply.

    MapPoint 2002 had some limited data for Greece and Eastern Europe which was taken out of MapPoint 2004. You might consider getting a copy of MapPoint 2002 (off eBay?) to check it out.

    The link you refer to is talking about the MapPoint Web Service. There is no way to add street and cartographic data to MapPoint 2002/2004.
