    Publish Interactive Map to the Web

    We have a mappoint map of the US with pushpins for all of our locations. When you select a pushpin you get the normal popup layer with the locations information.

    Also on the same we have territories that indicate potential markets for new locations. When you select a territory you get the normal popup with some custom demographic data.

    We would like to publish this map to a private website and allow our location owners the same interactive features (zoom in - out, select locations, select territories).

    The save as web page function in Mappoint just doesn't cut it. Does anyone know of any 3rd party products that will allow you to extract a mappoint map for display on the web?

    We also subscribe to the web services but I really did not want to have to create a custom solution for this. It seems that this would have already been done by someone.

    Thanks,

    Ken

    I have the same problem. I need to access real time maps form a intranet. And i would like to have some interactive features (zoom, pan,..).
    I would like to use MapPoint Europe 2004 with SQL Server, do i need MapPoint web service to do pan, zoom to the generated maps or is there another way to export those maps to the Client side directly from MapPoint??
    Or the only posible solution is to save the map in static HTML style???

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    I dont understeand completely yours application, but you can copy map to clipboard and then do whatever with the clipboard data in same or another application, for example a TCP server (single or multi tier) or a custom made HTTP server.

    I want to make the following:
    1. Receive an update from gps receiver.
    2. Build a map with a pushpin in the new position.
    3. save that map in html format.
    4. Receive that map in the browser client (Internet).
    5. Be able to do zoom in any area of that map.
    6. Receive the new map (new area selected) in the browser client (Internet).

    Can i do this in Mappoint???

    Thank you

    For MapPoint 2004, you have to look at the end user license agreement carefully, there is a restriction that you cannot hack the app to work on the Internet.

    Hi,

    As Eric mentined check carefull the licence agreement. You mention a private website, I assume this is intranet, but still check out !

    For your application every user has to have a licence of mappoint, so wy nog take other approach ?

    a. make a TCP server who does the receive of GPS information
    b. make a TCP client application with embedded mappoint cotrol in it

    1 Server Receive an update from GPS receiver
    2. It save it in database or some local storeage
    3 When TCP client connect it identifies itself and gets the GPS positions stored by the server
    4. Client udate his local map
