Getting started with Microsoft MapPoint and Microsoft CRM 3.0


Tie Your Mother Down…


I am in the process of developing a number of CRM 3.0 customisations and integrations for demonstration purposes, including integration with the Microsoft MapPoint Web Services. I will be posting code samples in the near future, and for those of you who want to start using MapPoint for test and development purposes you can sign up for a free developer account here:



With a developer account, you get full access to the MapPoint Web Service APIs that allow you to integrate maps, driving directions and proximity searches into a wide range of solutions. The developer account also gives you access to the MapPoint Web Service staging environment, which you can use to build applications for trial, demonstration, and proof-of-concept purposes.


If you want to get a basic understanding of how to use the MapPoint Web Services, then watch this recorded Webcast from last year:
