Either Bing Maps or Microsoft MapPoint must be used in conjunction with CDXZipStream to create maps in an Excel worksheet. Maps can be created through several functions:
CDXRadius: Create radius and driving time maps, using Microsoft MapPoint.
CDXLocateBing: Map up to 18 locations on a single map, using Bing Maps.
CDXRouteBing: Map a route with up to 25 destinations on a single map, using Bing Maps.
CDXLocateMP: Map a single location, using Microsoft MapPoint.
CDXRouteMP: Map a route with multiple destinations on a single map, using Microsoft MapPoint.
Functions using Bing Maps can create road, aerial, and for some areas, ordnance survey and Collins Bart maps.
For CDXZipStream versions that include the premium ZIP Code database, you can link to web-based ZIP Code maps in either MapQuest or Google Maps. Use your cursor to select the first ZIP Code in your worksheet, and click on the CDXZipStream button on the commandbar. Using the CDXZipCode data feed, select the
Map-MapQuest data fields. Then click
Get Data and CDXZipStream will automatically generate URL map links for every ZIP Code in your list.
