Product Review: MapInfo Professional Version 10.0

Indrømmet ... jeg anvender fra tid til anden MapInfo ...

I must admit ... I do infrequently use MapInfo ...

The new interface in MapInfo Professional 10.0 is certainly more visually appealing than previous versions. The latest release has greatly improved the ease of use of the Layer Control. In previous versions, users had to click OK buttons several times before a change such as a Style Override would occur in the map window. The Layer Control is much easier to work with now and changes occur instantly as long as the Automatic Map Drawing button is not selected. Users have more choices to store their MapInfo Professional data using proprietary databases such as Microsoft SQL Server 2008 and Microsoft Office 2007 products as well as an open source products PostgreSQL and PostGIS. The ability to create layered PDF files is a time-saving enhancement that allows the end users of the maps to be able to control the display of the map output in Adobe Acrobat software instead of having to keep recreating the maps one at a time. Lastly, the Proportional Overlay tool is a new tool that allows users to quickly calculate summations and averages of data when the polygons of two layers do not line up exactly.
