View Full Version : Renaming of Streets and Roads in MapPoint 2011

Is it possible to rename street and road names in MapPoint 2001.
We use mappoint as the Geo-Coding engine for our Compan software.
We hav a North Carolina customer which sees numeric names for streets which have common local names. The customer wants tobe able to rename the streets / road represented by the numbers by the common local names.
Is this possible?
If so, then how?

Hi and Thanks for your inquiry, welcome to the forum!

You'd have to do it separately outside of MapPoint. MapPoint's built-in data is not editable, so don't really look to MapPoint to do it. You'd have to modify/translate your data before importing your list.

hope this helps, even it it's not the answer you wanted.

And you could use the same process to automatically convert output such as routing information back to the local names.

The code would have to handle abbreviations and common spellings / mis-spellings.

Do you have a list of all the names?
