The shape of a route on an interactive map follows the contours of the underlyings roads / highways, etc. When we then use the same set of GPS corrdinates to geneate a static map, the resulting shape does not follow the contours of the roads / highways ... Instead, the resulting shape is a set of straight lines that create the basic shape of the route. We thought perhaps we might use the 'shapePoints' returned in the opimized route response, but prefer to ask for direction from Mapquest. Any assistance in getting the route shapes to match between interactive and static map is appreciated.
