    Re: Drawing Circles Around a List of Lat/Lons

    Hello, I am new to the sight and a very basic user. Is there an option to "Hide Size" for all of the radius circles created to remove the balloon showing the size of the radius. I have about 6K locations mapped and wanted to remove all at once. I am using MP 2010.

    Thanks.

    Yes! It would require a little modification to the script, I will do that now.

    Re: Drawing Circles Around a List of Lat/Lons

    Someone asked me some questions about this so I figured I post and answer here --

    As a user of MapPoint 2011 I am intrigued by your solution and I'd like to try it. I do have a few questions:
    * Does it draw multiple unique radii, such as 45 locations each with a radius of 9.33 miles, 20 locations with 6.33 miles, and 30 locations with 4.29 miles?
    * Can it designate a color for the circle ahead of time, such as choosing a shade of red for the 9.33-mile-radius circles and a shade of blue for the 4.29-mile-radius circles?
    1. Yes and 2. Yes!

    It doesn't have a setting for the width, but that could be added easily as well.

    Re: Drawing Circles Around a List of Lat/Lons

    For sshot1 --

    Here's a new version with columns for controlling the "weight" or thickness of the line, and another column to control whether or not the Distance Radius shows up on the circle.

    Hope this helps, have fun!

    Great! Glad to hear.

    For the other information, you could either do a Pushpin Balloon or a label. Some info on how to draw labels programmatically is here --

    Re: Drawing Circles Around a List of Lat/Lons

    I thought I saw Something where I can download another set of points and then get a list of the points in the original set that as the mile radius uploaded.

    So 2 list uploaded
    1- Radius upload as what was explained in this forum
    1- List of additional points
    But I need those points pulled out in the second list that fall into each one of the radius areas.
    Then export those to an excel sheet? Is there something that you are familiar with that can assist?

    Hi Roxanne,

    You could do it with a little code of new code in the macro, it would not be terribly difficult, I think we'd just want to figure out how best to format the output for your needs, or you could just right click on each circle and perform an "export to Excel" operation.

    Re: Drawing Circles Around a List of Lat/Lons

    Here's a new version which will first check to see if MapPoint is open and then add the circles to the open instance of MapPoint.

    If it does not find an open instance of MapPoint, it will create a new map.

    Drawing_Circles_Around_LatLons_v1.2.xls.zip

    In earlier versions, it would always create a new map.

    hope this helps someone!

    Exclamation Re: Drawing Circles Around a List of Lat/Lons

    Sorry to be coming to the party so late but I JUST experienced this last week too and the resolution was quite simple in my case - On the Options page in the MapPoint application, set your parameter to kilometres (from miles). Hope it works (or is still relevant after all this time). GB

    According to verious google searches, it should be 1 mile = 1,609 km..

    Iwe been trying to compare it to the ealier files u have uploaded, but I cant find any other changes whan this one:

    In the new Lat/Lon file is says:
    objMap.Shapes.AddShape geoShapeRadius, objLoc, fRadius * 2, fRadius * 2

    Wheres the old files say:
    objMap.Shapes.AddShape geoShapeRadius, objLoc, fRadius, fRadius

    When deleting the *2 from the code, its displays 1 mile, as 500 meters.

    Could that be the problem?
