Microsoft Releases MapPoint 2006


New enhancements bring business data to life with maps and optimize business travelers time outside the office

Microsoft on Monday announced the availability of MapPoint 2006, a new business mapping software. MapPoint 2006 can help customers improve decision-making capabilities and increase new business opportunities through the use of maps and geographical information, enabling better analysis, visualization and communication of business information. It also enhances its usefulness for mobile information workers by adding new Global Positioning System (GPS) integration and driver guidance capabilities so that users can make the most out of time spent away from the office. MapPoint 2006 is available today, and comes in two offerings: a stand-alone software package as well as one that includes both the MapPoint 2006 software and a new GPS locator hardware kit.

Benefits for Mobile Information Workers

Field workers, salespeople and frequent business travelers strive to maximize their time out of the office by streamlining their scheduling and by accessing maps, driving directions and point-of-interest information even when offline. New features delivered to the mobile worker include updated geographic data and a new GPS task pane that uses information from connected, compatible GPS devices to display current location, speed and traveling direction. Also, driving directions for Windows XP users determine location from a connected GPS device and combine it with route information to deliver voice and text direction information. Wi-Fi positioning is also available through a computer's wireless network capabilities and the Microsoft' Location Finder, which accesses a database of known Wi-Fi access points to determine a user's location.

Customization and Integration With Business Applications

Businesses continue to improve decision-making by visualizing business data with geographic elements on maps. Also, developers and independent software vendors (ISVs) continue to benefit from MapPoint 2006?s low-cost, high-quality maps; familiar development platform; and easy integration with Microsoft Office solutions. MapPoint 2006's demographic data refreshing capabilities will enable businesses to visualize up-to-date trends and combine business data with demographics to focus their marketing and better analyze results.

MapPoint 2006 can be acquired through Microsoft resellers and Microsoft licensing programs and at http://shop.microsoft.com for an estimated retail price of $299 for the standard version, and $349 for the version with a GPS locator.
