    MapPoint VBA - Radii

    Is it possible to use a macro to do:

    1) Find the highest concentration of pushpins within a circle of a set radius, within a wider region e.g. state / country?
    2) Same idea as above but searching for highest concentration of values in the data.
    ?
    I never knew it could do that

    I think you could.. I could consider drawing lots of radii and then doing a QuerybyShape on each one to see what's inside. To do the same with values would require more programming. It's not a trivial programming exercise (not with one line of code) but certainly do-able.

    For a sophisticated solution, you might want to investigate cluster analysis algorithms. They would probably work best if your pin coordinates are in your own data structures and not MapPoint.

    Again not a simple one line, but do-able with a little research.
    (cluster analysis is performed in data mining, for example)
