    More features

    Ability to search for poi within a drive time zone.

    Ability to generate territories which mix multiple types of geography (as an example, for the US: states and counties, and internationally, mixing say prefects, counties, and provinces.

    Ability for users to patch errors in streets. I've had MP directions send me the wrong way on one way streets, down dead end streets.

    Ability to get 'simplest possible' route, e.g., the one with the least changes in roads.

    MapPoint Wish List

    Whilst I appreciate that most people would only require maps by region, e.g. North America, Europe, etc. An integrated world version would nice, and my particular interest would be mapping of the Caribbean Basin.

    1) Integrated world version
    2) Map of the Caribbean Basin

    Hide stop labels

    I would like to be able to selectively turn off or on the yellow numbered boxes that label the stops used in describing the route. I have plotted a route with more than 40 stops that covers the area between Dallas, TX and Labrador, and when I display at a scale that includes the whole trip, the yellow boxes obscure much of the route, itself. Many of those stops were included only to force the software to follow a particular route and are not, themselves, points I am interested in. (I wanted to avoid retracing any roads and also wished to include some more scenic roads on my trip, so I added virtual stops to make the software do what I wanted. I definitely don't need to see those stop labels.)

    This is a good idea... and to enlarge, make the dataset from the poi exportable, i.e Send to Excel/Word/etc

    I use the Hotel information within a radius... and those points can be added as stops. I then route to all those stops and copy the directions to Excel where I remove all the route information and have a resulting list of Hotel information (Hotel Name, Address, Phone).

    So, my wish list item would be: include the ability to export poi's directly to Excel or Word either from a radius, a freeform selection, drivetime zone, etc.

    Keep banging on

    1. User control over the level of detail displayed

    2. The ability to select standard or customised colours for each individual data interval when producing Thematic Maps (for me, based on UK postcodes in the main). The current ones on offer are very "wishy-washy", and would need another feature to assist clarity (especially for presentations), viz:

    3. The ability to set the colours of map backgrounds

    4. Regular (downloadable?) road databases. My 2004 version does not have the Birmingham Toll motorway, and associated local road changes, which represents a major change to driving habits in the Midlands

    Perhaps Microsoft would like to check the functionality of a system called "Geoconcept", which, although more difficult to use than Mappoint, has a range of data display capabilities that are generally superior and under the total control of the user

    wish list.

    1. Make avoid area work. Avoid junction is what it currently does, which is useless for low bridges, narrow roads and closed roads, which leads me on toi...
    2. Map data. Can we have some that's newer than 12 years old? Check out closed roads in the London Boroughs.
    3. Multiple routes OR the ability to create highlight lines of different colours, which need to...
    4. Snap to Roads. If we plot a waypoint taken from GPS, it isn't always on the road. If you "route start" off road, MapPoint snaps the route to the nearest, so why can't it snap a waypoint to the nearest road in the same way?

    Editing the default Legend Categories

    Being able to select specifically which legend items (I'm speaking here of the default categories; Populated Places, Transportation, etc) to display or hide would provide the user much greater control over how "cluttered" the map becomes.

    Similar to "layers" in other GIS packages.
