    Integration with ASP pages

    How does a company do something like this? http://www.kgiwireless.com/WebMaps/HTSL.asp?State=TN (change the state and see how the map changes, too)

    I'm thinking about buying MapPoint and was wondering if they either have a static image map associated with the image or they purchased some sort of server add-on.

    Is there a way to do an repetitive export of maps once all my pushpins are placed (similar to how they did it on http://www.kgiwireless.com/Documents...erNumber=10136 and http://www.kgiwireless.com/Documents...erNumber=10506). I have over 7000 maps I need to create. See how the bottom 2 maps are consistently called xxxxxxArea.gif and xxxxxxDetail.gif on their pages. I'd have a consistent naming convention like that, too.

    Anybody have any ideas how the Vicinity purchase will affect MapPoint?

    Many thanks,
    Rob

    I poked at it a little (the site is really slow ?) I believe those are all static maps, you do not need a server add-in.

    I did an article showing how to do a repetitive export: http://www.mp2kmag.com/articles.asp?...omate.mappoint If you need help I am available and could probably do it in just a few hours.

    The acquisition gives MapPoint .NET a customer base and momentum to go after MapQuest (owned by AOL) it should not affect the desktop product evolution or plans I don't think.

    Mappoint 'web Maps'

    I have an early prototype of a new site at http://63.74.13.145/map1.html which I am still testing. There are only 3 or 4 pages at present and the latest version on my local server has the maps at a more detailed level and the dots changed to red!. It should take about 50 pages to cover the UK Mainland.

    I use Mappoint to generate the HTML pages locally and then run a program to read any resultant pages, rewrite the 'live' page, alter the URL's, insert decent ALT tags, build META tags and work out the page navigation.

    The whole process will be automatic but does mean that I then ned to upload any changed pages to the live server.

    What I would really like to do is to add some Java/Js functionality to allow me to place a dot at a selected position on little side maps which shows the user where he/she is within the UK.

    I like your initial set of pages, kessock! My MapPoint demo arrives in 2 days, so I'm sure I'll understand more once I actually see the program in use... What program are you using to 'rewrite the live page'?

    Scripting Language

    I use a product called Miva and have been for some years. Not quite mainstream but very simple, functional and and cheap...

    The HTML creation aspect of mp2k is good as far as it goes - the main problem I had was determining a decent size for the final image file. It does tend to create loads of directories which is a bit of a pain.

    Miva?

    Is it one of the products from www.miva.com? I can't find anything that looks like it would be appropriate.

    Miva - It's just a scripting langauge

    It does not have any special graphic handling routines - it simply allows me to read files, create and process HTML pages files dynamically. Think of it as a BASIC interpeter which happens to live on a web server!

    The new site is just about done - maybe check

    http://63.74.13.145/map33.html

    and let me know if there are any viewing/navigation problems.

    Pop Up Killer Not Working

    The pop up window doesn't go away for me after 30 seconds on my IE 6 connection. Otherwise, looks great!
