    Customizing Mapped Data

    I am importing store locations for 10 states and are trying to find a way to get a number of stores within a certain mile radius of various cities to compare the concentration of stores by city. Is there a way to do that in MapPoint? I'd appreciate any help.

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    Yes check the DistanceTo method. It will give the bird eye of view distance.

    Thanks Wilfried!

    So, is the DistanceTo Method something that would need to be coded? I am not a coder and thus my capabilities are fairly limited to the tools within MapPoint. Any suggestions given my skill level (or lack thereof)?

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    Yes indeed. It is something that has to be coded. But you cannot code MapPoint in MapPoint itself like you can do in for example Excell, Acces, Word,... So it is only possible if you are a programmer and use the MapPoint in your program.

    Another possibility is to do it in Excell or Access if you can code in VBA. Finding birds eye distance is not mutch calculate.
