    Import data format question

    I am trying to batch geocode freeway callboxes here in California. The info i currently have is basically in this type of format: Northbound I-405, .65 mile north of Fairview Road. Is there anything MapPoint can do with this ?

    I don't think there is much that you can do "out of the box".

    With some experimental programming you might be able to - but it would need some experimenting to find out.

    For example, if you can reliably locate the intersection of I-405 and Fairview Road, then using some logic, geometry and iteration it might be possible to use the distance measuring features to find the required point.

    How many call boxes do you have? If it is only a handful, it would be quicker to go out with a GPS and find their longitude,latitude coordinates
