    Problem shading by UK counties in MapPoint 2013 Europe

    I don't usually use counties for shading, but have just come across what appears to be a bug in the Europe version of MapPoint 2013.

    To demo the problem, I've imported the same data set twice and used one set for shading and the other as pushpins. You can see that there are large areas unshaded, but which have lots of pushpins. If I export my data, all the postcodes that have imported successfully are there and allocated to a county! I've attached a MapPoint file with the demo data.

    The problem appears to be that MapPoint doesn't seem to be using the big unitary authority areas consistently - it does recognise eg Kirklees or Plymouth and shade them if you import them by their names, but doesn't shade them as a county.

    Be interested in any thoughts - particularly whether there are similar problems in other countries I'm less familiar with, and therefore might be less likely to spot an issue!

    Have not come across this one yet, I found that postcode area's in Brussels have disappeared in MP2013, when I alerted Microsoft they suggested to continue to use MP2011 and ask my money back.

    Thanks for this - have made a note and will be grateful to hear about any other anomalies from others.

    I don't know if this helps, but I did notice that Shaded Circles properly maps the data.



    See the middle of the map.

    Where the counties should be shaded in the Shaded Area map, they are not, but the Shaded Circles showed up properly as expected.

    So it seems to be some issue with the Shaded Area map in particular.

    Actually I'm not sure the Shaded Circles are correct either.

    See that hole northeast of where it says "Lee" (for Leeds) on the screenshot above?

    That is York and there are a few Pushpins in York, so that's supposed to have a shaded circle as well (I think) :-/
