What is MapPoint?
MapPoint is a mapping software product from Microsoft that is redefining the GIS and desktop mapping market. MapPoint was originally released in 1999 and the latest version, MapPoint 2002, is expected to catapult this product beyond the desktop mapping consumer market and into the hands of real estate and GIS professionals.
MapPoint 2002 features the best commercially-available geographic data (streets and demographics), features tight integration with Microsoft Office, and like all other Microsoft Office products is fully programmable for third-party application development and add-ins.
