I was corresponding with a vendor who contacted me (he said) via the
Florida ESRI Users Group. 
After his last email to me - I became suspicious. Is this a real
I can't find anything about it. It seems fishy. 

Please read the conversation below - and let me know what you think. 
Do any of you use or know about this software?

   Our website is really no good to us... Most of what we do, we keep
strictly confidential, and for that reason, we can send you a demo, but
only after you contacted us.  We work with people that want to work with
us, not want to rip us off for what we have done.  We just dont want
what we are doing floating around for anyone to see, so if you would
like, I can put together a powerpoint with screenshots and other things
to send to you, but you have to try and keep it CONFIDENTIAL......  if
you agree, let me know and I will put one together for you..  I hope to
hear from you soon..

Okay - I'll be sure to look you up once I get there.
We are considering (at the very early fact-finding stage) a way to
import our maps into a graphics program for further customization.

Does your company have a website with a map gallery, perhaps - some
examples of work created by your software?

Thank you,

   I will be there.  Currently we are working with the FEUG to help
sponsor the event in hopes to showcase our product to all of the users.
If you are interested in our product we will be more than happy to give
you a demonstration as to our basic functionality (without custom
application functions specific to your company), and further along, we
will ask to use demo data from your specific data archive.  I would love
to hear from you so we can discuss this further.  I hope to speak with
you soon.

   My name is Jonathan Bunting, and I am with Map Painter Software.  I
was referred to you via the Florida ESRI Users Group.  Map Painter
software adds a long list of features to general ESRI functions
including the \"info/hyperlink\" feature that allows you to make an info
box which is opened by mousing over a set point(icon, shape) which shows
any information that you want, including hyperlink text!!!  We also
integrated a \"time/slide\" feature that allows you to track and
segrigated data over time with a quick and easy slide on the Map Painter
Viewlet App.  The most important feature of Map Painter is the Layer
Creation/Implimentation time.  We will reduce your Layer
Creation/Implimentation time by up to 80%.  What would once take you 8
hours to do, you can do now in 40 minutes with Map Painter Software.  If
you could use another 20-35 hours a week, then Map Painter is for you.
We would love the opportunity to show you what we are talking about, so
please contact me via e mail at Jonathan at or you can call
me at 352.346.0820   Thanks again, and I hope to speak with you soon.
