    Mapping data in MapPoint 2004

    Is it possible to map data more specifically than zipcode or census track...such as by neighborhoods, etc?

    I understand MapInfo offers mcuh more and it has a high price tag, but can MapPoint 2004 offer any better mapping, etc?

    Thank you.

    With MapPoint you can draw shape objects, that's about it. What I would do it prepare data in MapInfo and then export it to mif/mid and then import into MapPoint. You're right this technology is not cheap.

    Note that MapPoint offers a ton MapInfo does not.. like built-in streets, routing, and geocoding. I really view them as complementary products.
