Chris Pendleton mentioned “MapPoint 2010″ in a recent blog posting, although no details were shared.

This is off the top of my head, but here’s the release dates I remember for the past several releases…

  • MapPoint 2002 – mid 2001
  • MapPoint 2004 – mid 2003
  • MapPoint 2006 -¬†early 2006
  • MapPoint 2009 – mid 2008

I could be wrong on some of those times, but you get the idea. Microsoft has been coming out with new releases of MapPoint every two to two and a half years. Naming the next release MapPoint 2010 implies they are coming out with an update faster this time. Even if MapPoint 2010 comes out in early 2010, that is still less than two years since the previous release. On the other hand, originally I think Microsoft had been referring to the current version as MapPoint 2008, but ended up calling the release MapPoint 2009. Perhaps they will change and call the next version MapPoint 2011. Anyway, this is all conjecture, will share more news as it comes out!

    Do you know when Microsoft will incorporate the 2010 census data into MapPoint? I have 2010 version but could really use the new census data… will it be an upgrade in your opinion?
    thanks for your help!
