    Simple way to display data points & assoc information

    I am not a programer and am looking for a simple way to professionally display about 500 locations on a US map, each with 2 to 4 pieces of associated data I would also like to display. I have tried Pushpin tool and the balloons are on top of each other. Any ideas?

    Re: Simple way to display data points & assoc information

    Hi Steve,

    There is just too little screen to show everything.

    You're going to have to export the map at a lower altitude
    so that everything is visible at full map extents. This is the
    same in all mapping products (some allow you to zoom in upon
    a multi-layered pdf if you have both the need and the money).

    Many mapping products now include a print-to-pdf feature
    that will capture your data to a wall-size map.
    That is what I do uing MapPoint.
