    Can I add custom points of interest to mappoint

    Hello,

    I have need for an application where the use would type in an address and get a list of nearby county offices.

    I know mappoint can provide points of interest given an address, Is there a way to add personalized points of interest to mappoint?

    Thanks
    Jay

    Jay,

    I don't know about adding "Points of Intrest" but you could add your county offices as pushpins, when the user types in their address have it search for your pushpins within a given radius or driving distance.

    Have you looked at what can be extracted from OpenStreetMaps?

    Specific industries may also have their own databases (eg. camping and RV sites).
