MapInfo Professional Key Features

Data Access

MapInfo Professional provides built-in support to access and view a variety of data formats directly. This means you will be able to view your Microsoft Excel®, Microsoft Access® or database data, such as Oracle®, Microsoft SQL Server as well as many other file formats, directly out of the box. You can also view images of virtually any format. This capability ensures that MapInfo Professional will fit into your current IT structure directly with no additional cost.

Data Creation & Editing

MapInfo Professional provides many CAD data creation and editing tools as well as the ability to edit your tabular data such as values and names. This means you don’t have to switch between applications. Make all your changes for maps and data in one application and save time and effort.


Map display options are one of the great strengths of MapInfo Professional. You can instantly shade/change style or mark territories (using any symbol, graduated symbols, charts or graphs), boundaries, highways, fiber lines or points based on any tabular data values through a simple wizard. You can also aggregate values using statistical or any math functions to associate a symbol or a color to a point or a region based on a calculated value. For example, shade the sales territories based on number of customers. Trends based on geography reveal themselves, patterns become clear and better decisions with impact are imminent.

Data & Map Publishing

Sharing your results in industry formats is often as critical as the information itself. In today's IT environment, the need to have multiple publishing options is critical to meaningful communication between applications. MapInfo Professional provides a spectrum of options for this purpose. From the ability to export data to any format, to publishing large maps with legends and charts, MapInfo Professional seamlessly integrates across applications. In addition, MapInfo Professional is Web-enabled. Publish static or interactive maps through easy-to-use wizards. Share the results in a format that best fits your needs.

User groups

ALGMUG (Australian Local Government MapInfo Users Group)

The Australian Local Government MapInfo User Group (ALGMUG) is a e-mail forum established in 2006 as a means for Council GIS staff to communicate with their peers in Local Government. The forum allows users to pose questions, both technical and non technical, to others doing essentially the same kinds of work. Although primarily focused on day to day MapInfo/Exponare/GIS issues and discussion points, the forum has also played an important role in the progression of future product developments.
