Are you studying geography or cartography or something related?

Hi Eric,

How are you?

Currently i'm studying Geomatics, my focus research on developing new system to select the best Distribution Center location, the basic idea is using AHP (Multi-criteria evaluation), VB and MapObject as other reseacher done it successfully.

For your information, I have no MapObject Software, as an alternative, maybe i should used VBA and ArcObject for the combination, hope the system run well :), If you have some insight or view, you are most welcome,

I'm not so familiar with the differences between the ESRI products or the cost, but I would think regarding geographic calculations and the like the ArcObjects platform is superior?

Good luck with your project and let us know how it goes! What is the timeline?

I'm playing with the arcObject right now, very interesting and easy to understand.

There are 10months to go to complete the project and the thesis. While the system should complete in 3months, just a target in case there are some problems occur. Usually, the hardest part is writing, it quite difficult to write what we think to make people understand what we do. I wish i could finish my study on time :)
