    Can Mappoint import/display data source files that contain longitude latitude locations (GPS coordinates) and then place user defined symbols or pushpins at these coordinates?

    Yes, when you go to import or link to a data files, you just specify the column that contains the lat/lon, it is fairly simple.


    What exact format are your "data source files" in? Text, Access, Excel, etc. should all work. MS is working on a developer sample that shows how to bring in GIS formats.


    If it is GPS-outputted text files, in my experience, they are may not be real 'clean' in terms of having nice columns of data.
    you may need to do some manual clean-up or if there are many
    files you may consider scripting something in perl or another
    text manipulation engine to clean up your files.
