Seeing the roads for the trees
Tom Hi everyone:

This month we’ve included plenty of tips, tricks and ideas.
Start with this fantastic case study: See how the Spatial Analysis Lab at the University of Vermont used raster capabilities and 3D views to solve a big problem, uncovering a network of paths within the dense forest.

Do you like free? We’ve included a link to no-cost geocoding. It’s just one of many advantages that come with MapInfo Pro™ v16.0. Simpler, faster and smarter, our latest release comes with many can’t-miss features. Be sure to check out the Top 10 enhancements below.

We also demonstrate how old-school math can solve today’s most pressing challenges. Voronoi polygons make it possible to create a set of regions when all you have to start with is a point dataset. It’s very cool.

There’s more too. Thanks and good mapping.
