    Clustering pusphins

    Hello again-
    This might be off topic a bit, but I was wondering if anyone here knows of a way in MapPoint or even another program, where I could group my pushpins together in concentrated geographic areas.

    I have explored numerous Routing options within MapPoint and even multi-thousand $ programs for route optimization.

    What I have found is that its not really the actual optimization of the routes that I need, but the grouping of the pushpins, into tight areas, that I can then export and perform a simple data sort to arrange them alphabetically by street name.

    I know that what I wrote might not make sense, but if anyone knows or has an idea to point me towards, I would greatly appreciate any help.

    Thank you again.
    -Alex

    Hi Alex,

    Nice to see your name on the list.

    I believe you're referring to "clustering," which is a statistical method
    of grouping locations.

    That might help anyone who reads your post to suggest options

    Thank you Mike,
    Yes, Clustering does sound a bit more technical, as always I appreciate the help!
