    Question I want to create a map...

    I want to create a fairly simple map but have not had any luck so far. I ran across this site with a search. I want a two state map that shows distance lines, e.g. every 50 miles, from a center point. I also want to be able to edit the map to include my specific data (numbers) within each mileage band. Will MapPoint do this for me? Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks

    Re: I want to create a map...

    Hope Iíve understood the question, and Iím assuming you donít want to do any custom programming.

    First of all highlight the 2 counties by reading in a dummy data value for each via Import Data Wizard

    Eg

    County Value
    County1 1
    County2 1

    Then use the radius tool on the drawing tool bar to draw in the 50 mile circles

    Then you can use the text box on the drawing tool bar to enter your custom numbers in the mileage bands. The visual results on this arenít very satisfactory and you may be better using a graphics editor on the map image. A lot of my maps get included in Powerpoint slides so I often use Powerpoint to put on nicer looking add-ins.
