View Full Version : Found! Adding new data to MapPoint '04 North America

Does anybody know about this quote I read on the recent FAQ?


I have successfully replaced the files in the Mappoint 2004 data folder with the files from streets & trips 2005 data folder, substantially increasing the number of imported addreses found. Not sure if this has already been discovered, but I thought it was a good nugget of info to pass on![/i]


If this is true, then can it be used for road closures as well? I do not have Streets and Trips 2005, but perhaps someone reading this does.

Perhaps Streets and Trips can be the interface into which closed roads are entered. Then the file could be imported into MapPoint 2004.

Is anyone else as excited as I am about this possibility?

Now that MapPoint 2006 is out with much better data than both MapPoint 2004 and Streets & Trips 2005 and '06 the technique is not so useful right now, but maybe you can plug in data from Streets & Trips 2007?

The general technique is outlined here --
Using Autoroute 2003 Data in MapPoint 2002 (http://www.mp2kmag.com/a84--autoroute.2003.sweden.mappoint.html)

Let us know if you can get MapPoint 2006 working with Streets & Trips 2007 data and if you get a better geocoding rate.
