You can also view images of virtually any format, ensuring that MapInfo Professional fits your current IT structure with no additional cost.

Data Creation and Editing

Provides many CAD data creation and editing tools as well as the ability to edit tabular data (values and names). Make all your changes for maps and data in one application and save time and effort.

Data Processing

Spatial data processing is where you can see the power of MapInfo Professional. Perform geographic queries on customer data such as “Show me all customers within a kilometre of my office.” Instantly create trade areas based on common geographic variables (proximity to a major road or sales territory). Derive new insights and data by joining or splitting geographic regions (postcode boundaries). Create exclusive trade areas for all your service centres.


Instantly shade/change style or mark territories (using any symbol, graduated symbols, charts or graphs), boundaries, highways, fibre lines or points based on any tabular data values through a simple wizard. You can also aggregate values using statistical or any math functions to associate a symbol or a colour to a point or a region based on a calculated value. For example, shade the sales territories based on number of customers. Trends based on geography reveal themselves, patterns become clear and better decisions with impact are imminent.

Data and Map Publishing

In today’s IT environment, the need to have multiple publishing options is critical to meaningful communication between applications. Choose between a suite of PDF publishing options including standard PDF, layered PDF and now geo-registered PDF. This enables you to share more than just maps with your colleagues, but location-based answers. In addition, MapInfo Professional is web-enabled. Publish static or interactive maps through easy-to-use wizards. Share the results in a format that best fits your needs. Add MapInfo Stratus, and you gain 24/7 access to location-based data and analysis via the cloud—ideal for disseminating public information, enabling business users to fulfill mapping requests, and sharing geo-based enterprise data with co-workers, citizens, constituents and customers.
