i am brand new to Map Point, and i just installed the 2006 version. i work for a company called GASCARD out of midland tx. i am attempting to make it so that customers can go online to our website and type in an site,city etc..... and that site pops up, or a site in the city they are in pops up, and maybe they can even get a map how to get there.(is this even possible??????). i want to use different colors for different site. does anybody have any suggestions!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

thank you

Hi,

I'm afraid this will violate the end user agreement because your users will not have nececarly a MapPoint licence installed.

But you can do this also with Microsoft MapPoint Web Service, and also with Microsoft Virtual Earth.

ok MapPoint Web Service is this in the map point program or is it seperate. (if it is seperate can i download it), Microsoft Virtual Earth (same for this one). these will let me do it so that my customers can click and get a map etc.... now as far as the different colors for different sites. is it as simple as changing the color of the push pins? is there a way i can get detailed with it i.e. im doing convenient stores called town & country, is there a way i can have it to where can type in town & countrys in say austin texas, and it pops up all the town and countrys.

This sounds like it could be an ideal application for Virtual Earth.

The Web Service is a subscription service, but you might need that if Microsoft's commercial license for Virtual Earth is not acceptable.
