I have 30,000 pushpins representing a retail location. The retail locations are categorized into three groups. ABC.
I can manually draw a box around a set of pushpins and have it route those pins. However, I want Mappoint to take all the pushpins and automatically create list of routes based on the following criteria.

1. 25 pushpins
2. 50%=a 30%=b 20%=c
3. Route pushpins as close together as possible.
4. create a document per route.

Is this possible with MP or some other addons using scripts?

Thanks
Ken

It would require custom programming. Also this is essentially an optimization task which makes it more difficult. To get a good result it is going to need a certain amount of experimentation and some fairly sophisticated algorithms - it won't be a cheap sub-$1000 script...
