trying to figure out how I can calculate the best location to set the map object's location to ( lat, lon and altitude ) so that all of these points are visible on the screen. The altitude should be the lowest possible altitude were all the points are visible The map is using the orthographic projection ( m_oMap.Projection = geoGlobeViewWhenZoomedOut ) but all . My best (not very good) method right now is to calculate the range of coordinates of all these points and use the center of the bounding box of these points as my map location and then estimate the best altitude. My problem is that sometimes my altitude
I have identified the USPS zip-codes in one series of data points and then our offices in another series. Is there a way to turn off the pinpoints for the zip codes so that I can see the offices and then turn the zip codes back on? DaveDave, The new 2010 version of MapPoint has a new feature that lets you toggle Show / Hide pishpin sets.

I want to show a single Map of germany, in which germany (or other countries) is show separably without bordering countries. I can't find an possibility to do this. I would be very thankful, when anyone can help me.This is along the lines of the & ;quot;Single State Mapper" that Eric Frost (of
My app plots several gps points on the map. What I would like to do is size the map so that all of the points show when the map is first shown to the user. Is this possible? ShadShad, Did you try oMap.DataSets("My Pushpins").ZoomTo where oMap is your current map, and "My Pushpins" the dataset you added your pushpins to - in case you're using pushpins ? If you're not using pushpins, check out the "Union" method of the map object and its associated sample in the documentation. Gilles [MVP]. (Please reply to the group, not via email)Thanks Gilles! I used the union function and it works great. would show possible? dataset you method of the map
. Specifically, I need to be able to display about 2000 points on a map. I want to use colors to represent the state of the object. For example, green=good, yellow=warning, red= problem. My application constantly monitors these points and updates the status constantly. your opinion, is MapPoint suited to doing this or not? (perhaps there is another way of updating points quickly, currently I am iterating through the record set).Hi, This depends on what you mean BTW, the application that I describe runs on a medium-horse power Pentium-M Notebook computer (512MB of memory, usually a 1.5 GHz processor). The MapPoint ActiveX control actually invokes the MapPoint
type B. I am trying to make a program that finds all of the type B points within a certain radius of type A points and export the data associated with each point B type to Excel of code running I can export the points. However, I haven't found the method that will do this. Do you all have any suggestions? Sub AddRectangleToMap() Dim objApp As New MapPoint.Application Dim objMap As MapPoint.Map . Your error on the "New" keyword probably points to a syntax limitation of VBA, or the lack of a reference to the MapPoint object model in your project. To start it works. I just found the distances between the combination of all points. Below is a portion of the code. 'Get a location on the map Set objLoc = objMap.GetLocation(LatA, LongA) '
I need to understand if MapPoint can create a map of my points using BOTH "Sized Circles" and Shaded Circles as a combination? In the Data Wizard I the shape of let's say one element of the data to be a Star or a Square to show that it is the Starting point or Warehouse of the route and now all the circles represent the Delivery points or customers . It appears that all points need to be the same " the symbolfor the entire dataset. Yes, each dataset will be shown on the legend pane to the left of the map. You seem to require that differently colored circles (shapes) be centered upon where the wizard would normally place
In Mappoint 2004, is it possible to print, for example, a map of only the state of Iowa without parts of the surrounding states? This was not possible in the previous version of Mappoint that I tested. It printed nice maps of my data, but it always included parts of the adjacent states.Rita, I believe Eric Frost of www.mp2kmag.com has such a utility. He often tells readers that they can reproduce the functionality by "whiting out" the exterior of the state borders. It is probably rather tedious, so you may want to check his site. If you are looking for something larger, I regularly do work for clients who wish to obtain maps larger than 5000 x 5000 pixels and can easily meet your needs.
the data in the query, each country is shaded diffently. This works fine. Now I wanted to export the map of the whole world to a html file. However, I did not suceed to do so, only part of the world map is exported. (Also I cannot see on the screen the whole world as it is displayed like a globe and you have to turn the globe to see the other side of the world) Thanks for any help ;. Click on it to deselect this option. Marvin Hlavac Toronto, Canadaand in front of "Globe option. thanks for your message. I am using Map Point 2001 and unfortunatley there is no such option in the "View
Street & Trips to display all of the balloons for my imported data pushpins(show names and addresses for my customer list on the map); so I went and bought a trial version of MapPoint 2004 becuase tech help said that can't find answer anywhere! CAN I DISPLAY THE NAMES AND ADDRESSES FOR ALL MY PUSHPINS ON MY MAP AT THE SAME TIME??? or do I really have to select 1,241 pushpins one by one to turn have done this in my programs and I cannot understand why you want to open so many at once instead of just a selected area that you can actually view without the balloons overlapping; ie Altitude < 10. do selected areas , but it still can be about 50 at a time. Basically it is a printed map of customers that I can hand to a driver so he knows who to visit in his area. If he
on the map of the area I wanted zoomed into and and then I could do an objMap.datasets.zoomto. I hope this will help you, I will see if I can come up with a way to extrapolate where the points would need to be for your specific app, which I have a similiar one of.
