I am using visual basic and have a large number of points I would like to plot on a map. The information I have is the street address, city, state and probably the zip code. All I want is a dot on that map and these dots are confinded to the 50 states. I understand this may involve using google maps and I would like to place the results in a picture box. Examples I've seen in my research use coordinates and I don't have this information and are lacking in a good how-to tutorial. Please help

I'd start by taking a look at the Google Maps API. I imagine they have all the tools you need right there.

No solution yet

I've been to this site but am having a problem with how to utilize these examples in my VB code. I guess I was looking for a library to install and access with various functions. Not unlike excel or word libraries.

Perhaps try taking a look at their API and google map page sources, to come up with some HTML files to be viewed through a VB.NET application?
