What type of mapping software and/or online is everyone using? I am using a dated 4.0 Delorme I believe with ACI. Should I just buy the new Delorme or do you all have any other good suggestions?!?!! Thanks!!!

I use Delorme Street Atlas 7.0. I think it's a 1998 or 99 version. Bought the new 2003 version, because it sounds like it has some nice features like being able to add streets as they are developed....... but DO NOT waist your money. The new version does not run well, and the maps look like they were drawn with Crayon. Very poor quality, I was extremely disapointed in Delorme. I paid $40 for it. If you want to try it, send me $20 and you can have it.

GEOLOCATOR works well with ACI.

If you have an intersection in a rural area, then you can move to new streets or location.

It calcs distance, sizes map to get all.

Best timesaver other than data transfer.

We have ACI and use the web map version for our maps. Calculates the distances auto downloads into the form. You can change the comps and subject around if they don't match which sometimes they don't. Cost was $50 per year for each computer.

You may want to evaluate DeLorme's X-Map product. Find the blurb and an online demo at www.delorme.com.

This thing can do 3-D quadrangle maps if you have a need for them. It'll also let you overlay a digital scan of the county tax maps, properly georeferenced.

I'm on a Mac, and won't use Microsoft, so I can't use this myself. But the web page looks promising.
