    Custom Maps imported to MapPoint

    Is it possible to add custom images to mappoint. For example, can a new housing development be added? Are there tools to do this? What do I need to know that I am not smart enough to ask? I have access to a computer artist or an aerial photo and/or I am willing to do the grunt work to prepare the data.

    Sorry if this has been covered, I am so dumb I didn't even know the buzz words to search for (but I did try before posting this).

    You could add new housing by drawing the houses and roads as lines and polygons, but it is impossible to add this to MapPoint's road database.

    Hence the roads will be ignored by MapPoint during routing/etc.

    For satellite screenshots, the only way to add bitmaps is to create symbols with custom bitmaps, and locate them at strategic positions.
    I heard someone of doing this but I don't think it is very practical. As soon as you change the zoom level, the image will be destroyed!
