MapInfo Advanced Level Training - MI3
The advanced course is designed to develop the
users knowledge of MapInfo beyond the simple definition of the
commands. The intention is to aid the student in using MapInfo to develop
effective analysis and reporting techniques through hands-on use of
the software. The course is aimed specifically at users who will be
responsible for the management of a MapInfo installation, and those
responsible for interpreting requirements for operations in order to
develop applications. Delegates are provided with a full training manual
which may be kept for future reference.
Throughout the course we use examples from realistic business cases,
and there is an opportunity at the end of the course for students to
discuss the specifics of their business case with the trainer.
NB The Advanced applications course does not
cover the basic tools and operations required to use MapInfo. Those
applicants who are not yet fully conversant with the location and effect
of each of the MapInfo tools should first attend the MI2 - MapInfo Foundation
Advanced Applications Course Topics
An Introduction to workspaces - A brief
look at workspaces, and the MapBasic window.
Advanced SQL queries - This part of the
course develops the use of SQL beyond simple find and select statements
to sub-queries including the use of join statements.
Geographic analysis techniques - Basic
concepts of spatial analysis, with consideration to the types of enquiry
relevant to modern business use. This section builds on the use of SQL
to include the geographic operators.
Advanced thematic mapping - Thematic
mapping is a powerful communicator of ideas and concepts behind data.
This part of the course introduces concepts of thematic mapping designed
to enhance the communication of these ideas.
Object Editing - Advanced techniques
to aggregate data geographically and to divide data.
Using DBMS/ODBC to exchange data - Using
Windows ODBC allows powerful links to be created with remote databases.
Working with an Access database, the Database Management System routine
and SQL queries are used to plot data directly into MapInfo.
Using raster and AutoCAD images
- MapInfo allows raster images to be opened, but can also be used to
register these geographically so that they work with vector data. AutoCAD
drawings can also be imported into MapInfo.
