Except for road construction data, the information in Microsoft MapPoint and in Microsoft Streets and Trips is set before the programs are released. Because of the large quantity of information that is available and the constantly-changing nature of maps, it is impossible to include every road, town, and village in MapPoint and in Streets and Trips.
MapPoint and Streets and Trips provide some of the most comprehensive and accurate databases of road maps in print or on CD.

The lowest display altitudes in these programs give you a very detailed view of North America, complete with small roads, streets, towns, and natural features. Many of the smaller features are drawn from comprehensive geographic databases that have been compiled by the United States government or from companies that specialize in digital mapping.

How to update road construction information

  1. On the Route menu, click Update Construction Information.
  2. Click Yes.
If you find mistakes or have suggestions for improving the maps, click the Send Map Feedback command on the Tools menu.
