|Our next Open Day is:
7th July 2017
Open Day Subject:
MapInfo Pro Super Tools
There are many aspects to GIS and CDR holds an Open Day at our offices in the Peak District on the first Friday of every month for a drop-in session over a cup of tea - with no strings attached. We present, inform, educate and discuss a different subject each month. Just ask to go onto our email list for an invitation and give us a call to let us know that you are coming.
Anyone is welcome at anytime to visit our offices in the Peak
District to discuss and outline a proposal or need a demonstration
of the goods or services on offer. This is particularly useful in
the early stages of formulating ideas.
To go onto our mailing list for an invitation on upcoming Open Days, give us a call or fill in a contact form here
There are hundreds of add-on apps for Mapinfo Pro - we shall demonstrate some of the popular ones like RouteFinder - some paid for and some freely available.
RouteFinder Pro is one of the most popular and useful additions to MapInfo. RouteFinder works with any connected network table to generate routes, isochrones and network analysis.
RouteFinder has been re-engineered by the authors RouteWare and available for both 32-bit and 64-bit MapInfo. They have also produced a new translator for OS Highways data, which configures that dataset for routing purposes. Otherwise, we can also provide the MapGML translator (from BY Design) which handles OS Highways, OS MasterMap Topo and VectorMap Local. Then there is the effective HS Gridder for producing Hotspot maps - usually used and designed for crime data, it can be applied to other datasets such as fly-tipping or dog-fouling. This tool is still 32-bit but, like a lot of developers, is being upgraded to 64-bit
We shall also cover some of the free tools that come with MapInfo or that you can download from the Community website. Essentially, we want you to get the most out of your investment in MapInfo Pro and we enjoy sharing our knowledge and experience. Better still, we enjoy sharing your ideas and experiences with other users. Keep a look out for version 16.2 patch coming soon and if you are still on 32-bit (or both) then v15.0.2 has recently been released - we recommend that you keep up to date with your software releases.
