    Color Overlays not showing up when zoom to 48 - Help!

    Hello all,

    I'm sure this is one of those well-covered topics every forum seems to have, so my apologies in advance!

    I am attempting to map transit time values from 1 - 6 days. When zoomed into any regional level, all the color overlays show up just fine. However, when viewing the contiguous 48 U.S. via View - Zoom to 48 - the colors do not show up and it is simply a blank map.

    Does it have to do with the fact that any one specific 5-digit zip is simply too small to show up when zoomed out that far?

    I have to be missing something. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

    Version is MP 2004.

    Hey ToddziLLa,

    I can't fix it, but I can certainly capture it to pdf.
    See example maps on my website.

    I'd try downloading the MapPoint 2010 trial and see if the behaviour is any different, otherwise I don't think you have any more control over what shows up at what zoom level with MapPoint 2004..

    It may be worth checking out what the map looks like using a Multiple Symbol Map as opposed to Shaded. Choose small circles and an appropriate colour gradient. The results will show at whatever scale although it may be just too packed in for the whole of the US. Another thought was that on a transit time map you might expect a kind of contour map with large blocks of the same colour so it would be possible to set up a territory map. However looking at your map attachment there seem to be lots of islands of colour so maybe that wouldn’t be feasible.
