    Hi,
    How does the zoom functionality work on MapPoint? Does it hit the database everytime or does it just toggle the finer details visible/invisible?

    TIA
    Craig

    I would imagine it hits the database every time if I am understanding you correctly. Imagine, at the U.S. zoom level, if it pre-loaded _all_ the data including layers invisible at that scale, it would be reading something like 1 GB of data. For the speed at which it draws the U.S.-level map, I can't imagine that's the case. - Eric
