    Reading Data Stream DataRadio and MapPoint

    We have a DataRadio network where each vehicle has a radio device uniquely identified by an IP address. Each unit sends GPS data back to a server that sends the data to server on a specific port which is stored in a SQL database.

    Is there an Add-In for MapPoint that will allow us to read the unique IP address and data stream and display the data on MP?

    I don't think there is a commercial add-in that is specifically built for your purpose, but I have developed a number of custom applications that do what you are looking for (as I'm sure others on this forum have as well). I'd be happy to talk privately about it if you'd like.

    Hi,

    As Brian already mentioned this is a very common task for many users. 50% or more of my applications are vehicles "talking" TCP to some own made server and some data (normally positions) are given to a MapPoint application to display the position on the map.

    As far as I know there is no add-on and it should not because it would be different for each application and for each radio network (GPRS / Various satellite / MOBITEX / radio modem / packed radio / SMS / ...).

    Wy dont you do direkt ? I mean wy first store it into a database and then read it and display ? Just dispatch the received data, if it is position then it go to your mappoint application and to the database and if it is other information the in can go to the database only. Develop a dispatch program that does this task. This dispatch program talk to you mappoint application and to the database. It can be a NT service for example. Of course I dont know your application so this advice is maybe non sence.

    I think this is not off topic so can be discussed direkt on the forum. Could be interesting for many others here.
