New Addin: MPExporter, Export spatial data from Microsoft MapPoint
winwaed
We have just released the first version of MPExporter, our new spatial data export add-in for Microsoft MapPoint.

MPExporter can export all accessible data (**) from Microsoft MapPoint to KML, interactive HTML (using Bing Maps or Google Maps), and SVG(*).
This includes shapes, datasets, pushpin sets, and routes.

MPExporter has two license levels: Basic and Professional. The Professional license adds the ability to export shaded area datasets as actual shapes. This requires the shape definitions and is currently limited to the US only.

See MPExporter: Export your data from Microsoft MapPoint for further details and a free 7 day trial.

(*) For the first time, we are releasing MPExporter as a "pre-release" version. This "v0.1" lacks SVG support but this will be implemented before the main v1.0 release. All v0.* "pre-release" licenses will be valid for all v0.* and v1.* versions of MPExporter. There will be no upgrade fees for these versions.

(**) The MapPoint restricts access to the built-in demographic data in later versions of MapPoint. It also restricts access to Territory datasets. Therefore all territory datasets and some demographic datasets are inaccessible and MPExporter will not be able to export them.

Hi Richard! It's good to see you are still kicking around.

Yes I'm still here, and usually have a quick look-in every week.


Still selling a few licenses for my MapPoint add-ins, but of course a lot less than I used to. They're all still available though.


Now mostly working with Caliper Maptitude ( https://www.caliper.com ) which is more of a fully featured GIS system with more upto date data and better support than MapPoint. Yes it costs more, but still less than $1000 so very affordable re the GIS market.



I've also created my own routing engine and have implemented my batch route processing products for it. Uses OpenStreetMaps and can calc 100s of routes a second (1000/sec for many countries).


And I've been working with Android - I have a version of my MileCharter product in development/testing with Android. Intended for sales people/etc - you have your customers/leads, doesn't matter when you visit them, but it can direct you to the closest using current road conditions.

That sounds interesting. I expect Android should give you access to a decently large audience. From a development perspective, adequate multitasking and decent user interface for mobile use on handhelds or tablets.
