I am developing software to show the location of vicitms in disaster areas.
The positions are in WGS-84 format and we want to project them in mappoint 2002 Europe (trial for the moment) on the map.
Currently we are setting up an application which utilises MS-Mappoint Europe 2002 for projecting vehicle positions on the map in realtime.
We are actually creating a pushpin with the lat/loc coordinates to do this.
Our problem is that when we create a pushpin, it gets projected on the map but the position is incorrect.
There seems to be a deviation of approximately 10 kilometres...
When we use the location sensor tool to verify the position on the map , even the location sensor seems to measure a false lat/lon on the map.
We checked the map datum of the positions which is WGS84 . This is the format used also by MS-MAPPOINT , however we seem to notice this is probably not the case...
Is there any menu where we can setup the map datum or do we have another problem ?
P.S. When projecting this position on other mapping programs e.g. man 'n guide, police tracking systems, ... the position seems to be okay...
Could you advise me on this problem please ?
Thanks very much
