MapInfo Professional v12.0 Coming Soon
Rob Hello, I'm Rob Savage. I'm the Global Product Manager for MapInfo Professional. June is here and that means it is time for a new release of MapInfo Professional! The development teams are working hard on the final touches and the software will be available before the next issue comes out. In the meantime, I thought it would be fun to give you a little sneak preview.

Also in this issue we have a new section called "The Data Aspect". In this regular feature we will equip you with useful information on all things data related. Simon Dell'Oro from Australia kicks this off this month. We have a handy Easy Tip from Egge-Jan Polle, coverage of a very useful advanced thematic mapping technique and more!

One more thing, in addition to the MapInfo Professional v12.0 release we have a surprise coming later in June as well. I'm not going to tell you now as then it wouldn't be a surprise. Stay tuned!

Rob Savage, Global Product Manager

Something a bit more Advanced: Creating Bi-variate thematic maps!

MapInfo Professional allows you to thematically map a layer on more than one variable at a time. For example, let's say you have a table of restaurants. You can thematically map the table such that the colour of the symbol indicates the type of restaurant and the size of the symbol indicates how big the restaurant is.
