What is MapInfo Pro?

MapInfo Pro is a desktop software with which you can map your data. An example is the data visualized on a postal map. It is also possible to combine your data with socio-demographic, like population numbers, age structure and the level of income. Take a look at the introduction on YouTube to see the software in action. First Element also provides technical support.

MapInfo Pro 2019

This version of MapInfo Pro emphasises on improvements in the SQL Query language and interface, adding the Marketplace, improvements of the layouts and the adding of the Heat Map to the standard version.

There is a new Interface to create SQL queries. The new interface offers a lot of ways to create, save and edit your queries. Also the old interface will still be available. Layouts now support all the fill styles and line styles available for map objects. In addition, legends are “vectorized” which means that the images will scale without pixellating (getting fuzzy). And in the MapInfo Marketplace are apps available to execute special tasks within MapInfo. The Marketplace will be opened in a web page where all the apps can be found and installed.
