Bing Maps launched a new application in partnership with National Geographic called Global Action Atlas. The new app allows people to peer into areas where our planet needs help. The actionable themes include Conservation, Humanitarian Affairs, Cultures, Exploration, Climate Change and Energy. For example, if you click on the Animal and Plants icon in the Pacific NW region, Global Action Atlas will provide an overview of Bird Protection in the Northwest, specifically focused on the spotted owl,
v2.4 of MPSuperShape has just been released. This adds the ability to export pushpins contained by shapes to Microsoft Excel. Each shape's pushpins are written to their own worksheet.
The preceding version (v2.3) also added a umber of new features including the ability to set shape colors for all of the selected shapes all at once.
Further information can be found on the official MPSuperShape site, here: http://www.mpsupershape.com
I recently released the new "v3" pre-computed mileage charts. As well as using refreshed road & city data, these new charts contained many more cities plus the addition of Canada.

Earlier today we released v1.5 of our popular MPMileage Batch Mileage Computation Tool.
v1.5 adds support for System and File DSNs (Data Source Names) in addition to the original User DSNs. It also allows for the database login credentials to be entered at run time (rather than have them hard-coded in the DSN).
The User and System DSNs can also now be selected from a list of available DSNs.
