We have just released the first version of MPExporter, our new spatial data export add-in for Microsoft MapPoint.
MPExporter can export all accessible data (**) from Microsoft MapPoint to KML, interactive HTML (using Bing Maps or Google Maps), and SVG(*).
This includes shapes, datasets, pushpin sets, and routes.
MPExporter has two license levels: Basic and Professional. The Professional license adds the ability to export shaded area datasets as actual shapes.
Over the next few weeks, I'm rolling out a series of updates to the Mapping-Tools product line of tools and extensions for Microsoft MapPoint. Most of these fix a problem seen during the installer which appears on user accounts with restricted permissions. This fix has also been released in MPRouteWriter 3.6.
Today, MPCluster v2.3 was released. This performs cluster analysis in your MapPoint datasets.
See http://www.mpcluster.com for further information and a free trial download.
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 have just released a major new version of MPMileage: v2.
MPMileage is a batch mileage calculation tool for lists of point-to-point routes. Routes are stored in a database, and the results are written to this same database. MPMileage supports all of MapPoint's routing options and can also calculate travel times and estimated route costs. MPMileage can also run multiple MapPoint instances in parallel, resulting in significantly faster processing times on a modern multi-core PC.
