I use MapPoint 2004 in a commercial desktop app that needs to run disconnected from the internet. Recently, I've had inquiries about licencing the app in Australia; very exciting!
I've just realized, however, that MapPoint doesn't offer street level maps for Australia. I did a little searching. According to this guy, it's available: http://www.viavirtualearth.com/VVE/Forum/8/456.ashx, but I couldn't find it on either microsoft.com or the australian microsoft site http://www.microsoft.com/australia/. I did use http://local.live.com/default.aspx?wip=2&v=2&style=r&rtp=~&&msnurl=home. aspx?%26redirect%3dfalse&msnculture=en-US to get to the street level in Sydney, Australia, so that tells me that Microsoft has the data.
Any suggestions on how I could get a local version of the Australia data so I can continue to work with it offline in MapPoint 2004?
