I'm getting a lot of flak from my testers about zip codes, and I just want to make sure that I'm not lying to them. I'm coding in ASP.NET.
They want some way of displaying zip code boundaries to the user. I tell them that with the web service, this just is not available. It's not a MapStyle that I can allow them to choose.
There are work-arounds, like allowing them to place labeled points on the map. They really want the boundaries to display, however.
I mean, if I had a database of each zip code boundary's coordinates, sure, I could draw them on top of the MapPoint rendered image, using .NET's GDI+ (I already do this for other things), but this would be alarmingly slow and cludgy, I would think.
I'm not missing something else, am I? There's no way to show zip code boundaries, right?
