    I don't think it was a highly requested feature.

    Anyway, did you play with the Map Settings? That part is amazing. When I saw a preview of it in Redmond earlier this year I jokingly asked them what this version with the Map Settings pane was going to cost - $800? But of course they left the price unchanged.

    Oh that's great. Now you're able to clear up lots of data that wasn't removable before and it's pretty easy to use as it's set up as check boxes with a simple default reset button. Cool stuff.

    Guys: Sorry, I am new to the MapPpoint services. It would be grateful if someone guides me how to do a Single State mapping? and How can I programayically build the boundaries for "Counties" with territories api/ is there any work around for this feature?

    Thanks in advance,
    Chaitanya...

    Re: Single State Mapper

    The above is referring to the MapPoint desktop product and not the web services. The web services are slowly being replaced by the "Bing Maps" range of products - including web services. (in fact MapPoint Web Services now carry the Bing brand).

    MapPoint territories are very limited from the point of view of the API.
    I think it would b ebetter if you explained "big picture" what you were trying to do and then we can give some possible approaches.

    Thank you Richard:

    Yes, you are right, I was basically looking at the windows map. I found a way to programatically bring the County borders by defining the territory and use them programatically. Let me know if any one wants to leverage these kind of a features .

    What one thing still I am looking at is showing tooltip for the pushpins. It would be grate if I get some directions in this regard.

    Thanks,
    Chaitanya...

    Re: Single State Mapper

    Chaitanya,

    I think the only way to get tooltips is to do a Data Map.

    For instance, if you have a dataset that is all one pushpin -- do a Multiple Symbol Map but then have all the pushpins in a single category. The Tooltip will show what's in the "data" field. This may be a little tricky to get it to display exactly what you need, but if you post a sample maybe we could help with it.

    Thank you so much Eric:

    An another challenge I have:

    I was constructing the territories to be mapped programatically, I was successfull doing that. but I have a concern in plotting the boundary regions with custom colors. Meaning can I programatically set the boundory region color in the map?

    Thanks for your help,
    Chaitanya...
