    General question about mapping addresses

    Hi!

    I'm just getting started with MapPoint and currently am using 2004 and .net to create a custom bus routing program for our local school districts. I'm finding as I pull in addresses from our student management software and map them, many of the addresses are not very accurate. By that I mean that 15 Hancock Dr. and 85 Hancock Dr. are both plotted right at the start of the street. Is this common for MapPoint to not know where addresses are on a specific street and do you think an upgrade to 2006 will probably take care of this problem?

    Thanks!

    Re: General question about mapping addresses

    MapPoint interpolates house numbers. Ie. it knows the start and end street numbers for a street, and then puts them evenly along the street segment.

    MapPoint 2006 will be more accurate. It will have new streets, zipcode changes, etc.
