|Kicking off the fifth year |
Over the past four years, approximately 175 articles have appeared in the journal. You can check them out in the archive – see the link in the right hand side bar. With that said there is a seemingly never ending list of topics to cover and we continue to make progress this month. New users might want to check out the introduction to buffering. We also have an article on importing DXF/DWG format data into MapInfo Pro, new video tutorials for MapInfo Pro Advanced and MapInfo Discover and lots more.

As always, please forward this to any colleagues who might benefit from tips, tricks, techniques and advice for MapInfo Pro users. You’ll be helping us to help you. Greater numbers of readers helps us to continue to invest in this on your behalf.
