Product Review - MapPoint 2001 - Introduction

Purchase MP2001 Here

by GeoCommunity Staff

Click to enlarge The second major release of Microsoft's MapPoint business mapping software is now available to users as MapPoint 2001. MapPoint 2001 responds to what Microsoft has heard from their business customers, providing easy to use tools that help them visualize and communicate their spatial information more clearly.

Judging by my first impressions of this release, Microsoft has delivered on this promise. Microsoft's goal in the product's development was to improve productivity and business decision making when location is an important element. The image above shows the initial view displayed in the map window when first running MapPoint.

MapPoint 2001 brings even more street level map data to your desktop, enabling users to easily integrate maps and data of the US and Canada into other MS Office applications. The expanded data coverage is evident when first opening MapPoint. Canadian street level data is now included and the word from Microsoft is that European data is coming soon. Users can pan and scroll around the world, with major place names being displayed worldwide.

Currently, Canada and the United States are the only areas where detailed spatial and attribute data are available. Given that the full installation of the product requires some 800 MB on your hard drive, you can expect a fair amount of detailed data for the current coverage.
