    Hub and Spoke / Visual Display of Routes

    Does anyone know if you can display a hub & spoke network in Mappoint by using an Add-in? What I'm trying to do is display an origin with a lot of different destinations.... Basically having lines drawn from the origin pushpin to the destination pushpins. If you've ever seen how the airlines display their flight paths/network of routes, that's basically what I'm trying to accomplish.

    Thanks,
    Eric B.

    You could draw it as a series of lines/shapes. To do this automatically, would require some custom programming.

    If you're not upto that, myself and others on these boards could probably do it for you. (see list of developers from the main site index)

    Richard,
    I'm new to this site, but would like to find out more about having a programmer develop this capability for me. Where exactly do I need to go on the main page? (saw a link for authors, but didn't see a list of developers).

    Thanks,

    Re: Hub and Spoke / Visual Display of Routes

    I have the exact same task but I would like to take care of the programming myself

    However, since I'm new to Mappoint (but not to VBA), some tips will be appreciated

    Davidb suggested the following

    objMap.Shapes.AddLine objLoc1, objLoc2
    objMap.Shapes.Item(NRow - 1).Line.Weight = LineWeight
    objMap.Shapes.Item(NRow - 1).Line.BeginArrowhead = False
    objMap.Shapes.Item(NRow - 1).Line.EndArrowhead = False
    objMap.Shapes.Item(NRow - 1).Line.ForeColor = vbRed

    However I don't know how to define the object locations (as coordinates, city names, postcodes?)

    Thanks
    Nick
