Can I convert older versions of Mappoint maps? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I recently installed Mappoint 2013 and would like to populate data from maps that were created with Mappoint 2004. Any chance this can be accomplished?

  • Yes but you will need to use an intermediate version to convert them.  Eg. take MapPoint 2009, load the maps into those, save them, and then re-load into 2013.

    You will find many locations cannot be found due to changes to road addresses, zipcodes,etc.

    Depending on what you are converting (eg. just datasets), you might be able to get away with using MapPoint's Export to Excel function, and then re-import using 2013's Data Mapping Wizard.

    We have two products which might appear to be relevant (MPSupershape and MPExporter) but neither work with MapPoint 2004.
