    Hi Vidya,

    You might consider partnering with a developer or consulting outfit that knows GIS and MapPoint..

    For ecw files, I'd try getting them into MapInfo.. you can also work with MapPoint in MapInfo using a tool called Map-In-A-Box.

    Earlier today I was researching ECW and MrSID files for a non-MapPoint project. This was just a preliminary overview and I didn't get into much detail except find out what they were and could we/my client support them.

    re. your question:
    The quick answer is no. You cannot import aerial photograph images (of any kind) into MapPoint.
    However, I remember someone on the Usenet saying that they managed to get an imported aerial photo effect by importing lots of different pushpin images and tiling them at a suitable spacing. The problem with this is that it only works at one zoom level.

    If your data is relatively coarse, you could plot it with polygons. I would expect MapPoint to be very slow though.
    A similar technique is used by my GridImp product:

    but this plots data that is typically a lot coarser than aerial imagery!!
    (my earthquake hazard samples use data on a 0.1deg grid)

    If you are looking for someone to do some ECW coding, I would be interested. It looks an interesting format, and the shared experience with this other future project would be beneficial for all.

    ecw pics

    Hi, this is my first post here... so, please, be kind with me.

    I'm new to MapPoint, so I'd like to know: are there news about ecw pic integration with mappoint?

    I have a lot of georeferenced pics (shot from a plane) in ecw format and I would like to show them UNDER mappoint map.
    Is it possible to create a layer, under mappoint layer, with my pics?

    Please let me know, this is crucial for my work.
