Description MapInfo Professional integrates maps and databased information into a desktop GIS system. Layering lets you place different data sets on the same map to reveal geographic relationships. Thematic Mapping and Thematic Templates for shading maps based on data values helps visually reveal patterns and trends. Hundreds of colours, symbols, and line types. Save frequently-used templates for future reference and modification. Raster Image Support, for use of raster images such as scanned paper maps, satellite images, photographs, and logos. Attach Data to Map Objects to view information associated with a particular point on a map. Linked Views allow users to simultaneously see and/or edit data in three linked views: rows and columns, graphs, and maps. Features: Continuous Thematic Shading. Seagate Crystal Reports. Step-by-step dialogue boxes, drawing tools, and automatic/manual map labelling. Object buffering and geocoding. Geographic selection and search & find. Full SQL capability with geographic extensions on expressions. Digitise paper maps to create digital vector maps. Build and save SQL queries that access and integrate data from multiple tables. Frequently performed queries only have to be written once and can be distributed to others. Perform detailed geographic searches with buffering and area selection tools. Integrate geographic criteria into database queries (contains, intersects, within, etc.). Perform re-districting to balance regions and test alignment scenarios to discover how to improve your regions (school districts, voting districts, redevelopment regions, etc.). Create new map objects from polygon intersections, merges, or splits, and perform data calculations on the new areas. Live ODBC Access for Direct Read/Write capability for locally-stored data types such as dBASE, Microsoft Access, Microsoft Excel, Lotus 1-2-3, and ASCII. Also provides live simultaneous access to remote databases such as Oracle, Informix, Sybase, Ingres, SQL Server, and other ODBC compliant databases.
