    Automatic generation of Drive Time zones around PushPins

    Hi

    I have a data-set comprising about 400 pushpins created from an Excel upload.

    Around each of these I wish to create 30 and 60 minute drive-time zones and I appreciate I can do this by right-clicking each pin... but I'd rather not have to do this 800 times

    Is there any way of automating this process?

    Thanks
    Simon

    There is some sample code and app in the MapForums Downloads section ($99), it is an Excel Macro (VBA).

    Drawing Drivetime Zones Around a List of Lat/Lon's

    The posted tool draws the Drivetime Zones around a list of Lat/Lons. If you sign up and are interested, I could make a new tool that draws the drivetimes around a list of existing pushpins.

    Hi Eric - thanks for the quick reply... I take it then the short answer based on the existing functionality of MapPoint is no.

    Need to see if I have an expense account!
