### Re: Building distances mesh

thinking again -

the best way is possibly to compute straight line distances between your points, rather than road distances.

that would be do-able and trivial. seconds, minutes at most

### Re: MapPoint drive speed legitimacy

just come back on

when you calculate the route you can get timings of each checkpoin/instruction - can you not use that to see exactly what is going on?

maybe your speed values just arent...

### Re: Varying travelling time by "time of day"

I thought (I have seen) there was an argument/method you could add to a waypoint etc, to indicate a halt time. (eg a drop off)

maybe there is a minimum speed for motorways, irrespective of the speed you enter.

look at the actual route that gets generated, see if that helps.

### Re: Mappoint Calculation Speed

well generally i have full postal addresses with/without postcodes

but the lats/longs I am using are the lats/longs returned by findaddressresults, when the resultsquality is of level 1 or 2.

You may need to check the resultsquality BEFORE relying on the result

mappoint does loads of things - maybe the liverpool version of the post code is just one of the things it does to try and...

### Re: Best Way to Store MapPoint.Location Data ?

although location is read only, there is a method to populate it

all you do is

dim objloc as mappoint.location
Set objloc = objmap.GetLocation(mylat, mylong)
