    interactive with MP internal data

    Hi,
    I am new to MP donít have many knowledge about the MP internal,
    I have couple questions about retrieving information from MP.
    1) Given street address, how to retrieve information such as nearby intersection and cross street names.
    2) Since street is not a straight line, how does MapPoint describe the street in the database

    Can some body share your thoughts?

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Hi Mike,

    1. To get nearby road names see the reverse geocoding methods, there are three articles which explore this in the articles section. I'm not sure how you'd detect an intersection specifically, but maybe you could consider the two closest unique street names to be an intersection? You'd have to explore whether this assumption holds or not..

    2. Typically a GIS or mapping program would store a "line" such as a road segment with multiple "nodes" along the line at each point where it turns. However MapPoint specifically handles this however is entirely academic as there's no way to access the vector information details for the built-in mapping layers like streets.
