    Is there a workaround for the Mappoint Zoom Constraints?

    We spawn mappoint and automatically draw some geometry (specifically airport runways.) Unfortunately when we do this in a place where MapPoint has no low level data set coverage (e.g., Asia, Africa, etc.) we are limited to only being able to zoom down to 150km of altitude. When MapPoint has low level data (roads, etc) it lets us zoom all the way down to 1km of altitude.

    The lack of the ability to zoom in even further when there is no low level data is really hindering us. Does anyone know of a way to work around this? Thanks in advance.

    I do not believe there is a work-around unfortunately... you might try a low end GIS such as Caliper or Manifold..
