View Full Version : "FindNearby" in MapPoint 2010 Object

... it was in 2006, is it not in 2010??
How do I find POI near current location (based on GPS)...
FindNearby method (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa562369.aspx)
But I will be damned if I can find that method in the 2010 object.

thowle, yes it is in 2010.
There doesn't appear to be any Microsoft website pages for it, but it works the same as what you're used to.

It's under the location object of the active map.
Returns results as Locations, where name is result(Location).Name, and .StreetAddress.

ActiveMap.Location gives you the location of the center of the map currently visible. If you need it from a given GPS position you first have to calculate the Location of that point. Something like this:
Location loc = MP.ActiveMap.GetLocation(lat, lon, alt);
