    Extract National Forests, Parks, and Wilderness Areas?

    Is there a way to get a list of the names of all the national forests, parks, and wilderness areas from MapPoint 2004 North America? It must be buried in there somewhere. Using the "Find" and then "Place/Data" they can be searched for by name, but using the "Find Place" there are no categories for forests and parks. Would these items be considered "Points of Interest"?

    Parks as Points of Interest

    One could only hope parks of all types would be points of interest with their own place category. But it seems not.

    All I can see so far is that you get some results with FindNearBy Method.

    The returned object has a couple options.

    1) as you mention search for "park" in the object.Location.Name
    2) Check object.PlaceCategory.Index = 7 for campgrounds
    3) Check object.PlaceCategory.Index = 14 for Landmarks and then try to determine if it is a "park" as in step 1.

    If you find some better way let us know. I could use "park" information when reverse goecoding vehicle location. The boss always seems to be interested in the vans parked in a park.

    ciao,
