    Does MP 2010 support road intersections?

    I never used such a feature before and wonder if it even exists.

    For example, if this intersection was used:

    HURON AND CLAIRE
    LONDON, ONTARIO, CANADA

    Could MapPoint make use of this informatiom to at least get an approximation of the location?

    Just wondering...

    Thanks,
    Bob

    Yes, it will geocode to intersection, but it doesn't happen to know those specific streets I guess. :-/

    Try plugging this into the Find Box --

    Oxford & Richmond, London ON

    Eric,

    Pretty cool.

    So would I use the same old function that I normally use: FindAddressResults()?

    I guess that when there's a match, it's better than nothing.

    Have you ever used this feature?

    I don't think I've explored it programmatically in detail, but when I've seen data with intersections I would just let if go and plug it in as the address.
