MapPoint Data Sources

MapPoint Web Service is deprecated and will be retired November 18, 2011. Please go to http://www.microsoft.com/maps/mappoint.aspx for information about upgrading to Bing Maps.

MapPoint holds the data used for the find, route, and render services in a number of different data sources. The following table shows the data sources available to all customers of MapPoint (customers can upload data for their own use to a custom data source on the MapPoint servers.). The table describes each data source and identifies the functions it is capable of performing in terms of DataSourceCapability enumerations. The 'Data Source' column is the DataSource.Name property.
