View Full Version : MapPoint and Find Near Route
10-26-2010, 06:35 AM
I am trying to use VB and MapPoint to create a route based on information from a form and once I the route is plotted check along the route to see if there are any 'custom' points of interest within 1 mile of the route. I have the form and the route portion of the code working but I can't work out how to find near by PoI using VB. I can use the inbuilt functionality in MapPoint to generate it manually but automating it is a problem.
Any hints, ideas or bit of code would be greatly appreciated.

Not sure from your description I can understand it exactly.
Could you post some sample data with more explanation?

I have a set of pushpins in MapPoint that identify my points of interest. I want to create a route from A to B and have MapPoint identify which of my points of interest are within 1 mile of the route.
I have already used VB to automate the route generation part of the process. I can check the points of interest manually using the Find Nearby button and changing the location to Entire Route but I canít work out to automate it and ideally I would like to query the results.
All help greatfully received
