    MapPoint Programming Documentation? Why so little?

    First let me acknowledge my appreciation of this forum and the very smart guys that run it. But I have to ask, why is there so little documentation for programming MapPoint?

    It seems to be a widely used map engine resource, yet there are no books, and very little published information about programming with MapPoint. Is there some resource I don't know about?

    What in particular are you looking for? The Help file contains a lot of information. Also, in the articles section of this site there is a great deal.

    Microsoft's own MSDN programming articles are a but web service and .NET heavy, but there are still quite a few articles worthwhile for MapPoint 2004. Finally, the MapPoint for Dummies book contains sections on programming.

    hope this helps,
    Eric

    Re: book

    For those interested in leveraging Excel and/or VBA with MapPoint, I have a new reference out titled "Excel Basics to Blackbelt" (Cambridge Press 2008 ). Lot's of tricks to make use of. I've made a number of applications that integrate MapPoint with other apps through Excel and VBA as well.
    Here's a video link to a redux of a Webinar I gave for both Palisades and Cox Communication recently:
