I am not sure exactly what the buzzwords would be to ask this question, but I have MapPoint 2013 at work, and I have been asked if it's possible to determine if there is a freeway within a mile of any given address.

I know all of the names of the freeways/highways in my area if that makes a difference.

Does anyone know if this is possible, and if it is, where I might find any sample code to get me started?

Thanks,
Jeff

You could start by adding pushpins to the exits nearest the address. There are exit databases to found on the Web.
If you look in the MapPoint's menu for help and look under the programming reference for FindNearby, you'll get example code.
