Trying to create boundaries

Jun 14, 2010 at 12:15 AM

Hi,

Currently we use MapPoint to map our territories. Now I am creating a mapping program to assist with routing and want to show the territories on this map (similar to MapPoint). What is easiest way or are there any built in functions for creating a "shaded" or colored area around a zip code or group of zip codes? I searched the discussions and found very little.

what version do you use?

I assume you mean MapPoint, I use 2009 and some people use 2010 so I use that occasionally too. Otherwise I'm using windows forms .net 4 and made the changes to use any cpu.

yeah, really easy to use the polygons (thank you - awesome work btw)... Just trying to determine how to find the coordinates of the edges of a group of zip codes in order to create them. 

 

Would this be easier if I used WPF?

wpf version doesn't have sure polygon support yet, you can generate it manually like it does the route
