    Drawing lines on the map between connected points

    I have loaded in 450 sites based on postcode into MP2004

    I also have information as to how those sites are interconnected as part of a telecommunications network.

    I wish to draw on the map lines between connected sites.

    Can anyone advice on how i might do this.

    There is an AddShape method as part of the object model for Mappoint, if you know a little VB or programming, you could set up a simple loop to draw the lines.

    Eric beat me to replying, but you can also display extra information by setting the color and thicknesses of the individual lines.

    Eg. more traffic => thicker line
