I have what I think is a simple requirement in that I need to read 2000 records (each with UK National Grip refs) from a dbf file, plot them as points on an outline map of the UK, make these points clickable and then output the map to a gif of jpg file complete with the required HTML IMAGEMAP tags.

Has anybody done this? I would get an evaluation copy of Mappoint but the MS server has not been responding for a day or two.
