    Lines as pushpins

    I have some Mif files who generates lines form trainstation to trainstation.
    Is it possible to make these lines as a 'pushpin' so data from an sql database can be shown. I allready have the pushpins from the stations and those work excellent.

    How do I adjust the *.mif file or are there other options.

    TIA.

    Generally you would use MapInfo or other GIS software to manipulate GIS data.. the mid/mif specification is not that difficult however, you may be able to use Perl or other text manipulation engine to process the data.

    I'm not sure what you mean by a click-able line.. maybe this is something that would be done in the Spatial Data Importer developer sample?

    click

    by a clickable line a mean a line with x an y coordinates.
    (by example a railroad)
    Like an pushpin must it be possible for the complete line to be a link to another page with information.

    Is this possible?

    You can't do that with a line.. only pushpins. I'd recommend having a pushpin somewhere along the line for a user to click on.
