    a few questions

    I have a few questions about MS Mappoint, I will try to explain me as good as possible (I speak Dutch).

    1) MS Mappoint's upgrades, what do they contain? Does MS add some streets or is it about bigger changes?

    2) Is it possible to use Mappoint on a Server? Multiple connections at once? And is there a special Mappoint-Server version?

    3) Can I use Mappoint with an Oracle db?

    4) Can Mappoint show GPS-co÷rdinates on the maps? Which one's? (WGS84?)

    As you can see, a lot of questions, I hope at least some of them get an answer.

    Tnx!

    5. Yes, possible there are some codesnipplets for a single point. We bought the PushpinTool (75 US Dollar) and it works great for a whole dataset.

    4. Yes, WGS 84 for europe. No problem

    1. Never got an upgrade. MS says twice a year...

    2. There's mapPoint . net which sounds interesting. Just have a look at MS

    MapOint understands UDL


    Otherwise you have to program a com add-in (we did it as a certain ADO query but in a self-built app with a mappoint control...)

    I know this might be not the right place to ask the following question, but I don't know where else to put it.
    Here it comes:

    Are there any other product similar to MS Mappoint (same functionality's, etc..)? I would like to know other options (pricing, etc..) :)

    Check this out for Oracle:

    Well I think MapPoint has by far best relation price / functions / data..., although I'm not a MS fan..
