    MapPoint 2004 - a few questions

    Hi, I am looking to setup a .net project which will pass in a dataset which will display a map with this data mapped onto it. eg areas with shades. I am using the North America for this proof of concept.

    I am looking for some sample code (as Im not a programmer) pointers, links etc.

    Also is it posssible to map just on one state? Pass in eg Texas, all the counties within it and a total value.


    The data I will be passing will consist of :

    County & total (eg total number of premises)


    I am able to import in data using a csv file with the above format plus the State on each record .... Oklahoma, Osage, 98 but now would like to have this automated (being called from a .net application)


    What are the differences between the standard MapPoint 2004 and the developer edition? At the moment I am only evaluating the product pending the proof of concept and release of the 2006 version.

    Thanks

    Michael

    MapPoint "consumer" and "developer" versions are the same. Look in the help that comes with it for API programming information (also covered in Chandru Thota's book "Programming MapPoint .Net").

    Streets & Trips (and AutoRoute in Europe) look similar but are intended for home routing applications - they have much of the data, functionality, and all of the programming interface cut out.

    No, you can't plot single states, although Eric' Single State Mapper template might be usable for your application (see this site, or my site below for purchase information). This has white polygons which cover the other States up. Your problem would be determining which polygon ("Texas" in your case) to delete. Moving the map to the required state and then deleting the polygon at the center cannot be guaranteed to work for all US States due to their inconsistent shapes.

    Winwaed, thanks for the reply and comments. Just showing a single state isnt a major problem, so I can work with the surrounding states showing.

    Does anyone else have any comments or examples of code that I could use?

    Thanks

    Mikey
