Hi,

Is there a way of sharing maps from Mappoint?
All I seem to be able to do is print them out, or share them as XLM files, whereas ideally I would like something like a PDF at the very least, or ideally a flash object or something

I can see experts are not one for Mappoint so have ordered a proper guide, but here's hoping in the meantime I can make some progress before delivery

thanks

It's been some time since I worked with Mappoint, but what I used to do was save the map as html. That way you get an image of the map.

You can do that yes, but that is a static image of the map. So if you provide a full map of the UK, and then try to zoom in on, say London, you cannot see any detail.

Is there a way of sharing something interactive?

Thanks

I don't think that's possible. The bottom paragraph of this page explains why:

If you want to share interactive maps I'm afraid you need to use bing maps or google maps.
You might be able to use something like this:
