Easy to learn and use

The MapBasic development environment is a freely downloadable programming language for MapInfo® Pro. It can be used for any sort of customisation from simply hiding or rearranging a few menus to creating comprehensive mapping applications. Knowledge of programming is helpful but if you are new to programming, MapBasic provides extensive on-line help, documentation and sample applications.

A range of applications

MapBasic can be used for automating repetitive tasks, adding new capabilities to MapInfo® Pro or even creating specific mapping solutions for a particular use or industry. An example of adding a new capability to MapInfo® Pro is the Distance Calculator tool, pictured here. The Distance Calculator is one of the many tools in MapInfo® Pro’s Tool Manager.

Source Code from the Experts

Encom Discover boosts the data handling capabilities of MapInfo® Pro, adding support for over one hundred additional industry-standard formats. These include advanced functionality such as image rectification and re-projection, batch ECW import, vector import and conversion (such as the GPS eXchange and Google Earth formats) and database connectivity (e.g. DataShed and AcQuire).

User-generated tools

MapBasic allows the development of software in popular programming languages such as C, C and Visual Basic to help automate repetitive operations in MapInfo® Pro. Hundreds of third party applications have been created using this flexible development environment, many of which are offered to the MapInfo Community for free.
