    How would I handle Fleet management in MapPoint? Need solution for client.

    Hello,

    I have a client who needs a solution with the following:

    1. Import data from a passive gps unit (which is currently stored in a SQL Express database), and display the routes of 30 different icecream trucks on the map.

    2. Need to flag when a truck sits idle for more than 10 minutes, both on the map and in a report.

    3. Need to define zones for trucks (approx. 5 square miles) and flag whenever they leave that zone and display on the map and in a report.

    4. Be able to filter the waypoints on the map by vehicle.


    The data I have stored from the GPS unit is:
    1. Longitude
    2. Latitude
    3. Speed (mph)
    4. Travel time
    5. Idle time (stopped)
    6. Idle time (in traffic)
    7. Various codes indicating link issues, etc.

    How much of this can be down out-of-the-box in MapPoint 2006?

    Can all of this be done in MapPoint, or do I need to use Live Maps/web services too?


    Thanks for your input in advance!!

    Hi,

    Yes this can easy be done with mappoint.

    In your program you import the data and display pushpin for each position you have. You can connect the pushpins by arrows to see the sequence.

    You can set any bitmap for the pushpin and set text balloons at your choice at well, so easy to see if a truck is sitting idle for a while.

    Same for the zones, if a truck is outside of a defined zone you can change pushpin bitmap, text balloon or whatever.
