We put this together to demonstrate how MapPoint can be used to make animated maps.
The video shows all of the past Superbowl contests. The logo for each team is displayed over their home city and lines show where the actual game took place. Textboxes at the top of the screen show details including attendance and the final score.
I am currently working on v3 of MPSuperShape. This will be a free upgrade for existing licensed users of MPSuperShape v2.*, but it will include support for Windows 8 and a few relatively minor additions.
The Windows 8 support is requiring a complete rewrite of the projection/coordinate system support in the ESRI 'Shape' (SHP) file and MapInfo 'MIF' import/export options. This is where I need the beta testers.
The new version will continue to support multiple coordinate systems

We've been preparing a geography game using MapPoint -- you have to identify which U.S. State is shown in MapPoint. Doesn't sound too hard, but you have to try it. How well can you do on your first try? Personally I thought I could probably identify 20-30 states by shape, and given context (surrounding states and water) I thought I could do 100%. But in practice my accuracy was more like 90%.
In coming weeks
