Shape Manipulation for Microsoft MapPoint


MPSuperShape is an add-in utility for Microsoft MapPoint that manipulates MapPoint shapes. MPSuperShape can perform a number of shape operations such as combing shapes, finding intersections, creating boundary shapes, and simplifying shapes. It can also import and export shapes from/to a number of different file formats.


MPSuperShape requires a PC running Windows 7, 8, Vista, or XP; and Microsoft MapPoint 2006 (or later). The Microsoft .NET Framework version 4.0 (or later) is also required. Microsoft Excel 2003 (or later) is also required if you wish to use the Excel Pushpin Workbooks export option.
