It's all about SCALE!
Tom Welcome to this month's issue! Craig Pinhorne-Smy, a first time contributor, debuts with "It's all about Scale", a discussion on considerations when sharing your mapping masterpiece with a large audience.

We also have another author debut in this issue. Nicola Hall, an expert trainer brings the Query Ninja back for an article on calculating the length of line objects.

We'll continue our coverage of MapInfo Professional v12.0 in the easy tip section and also have an overview of what is in the v12.0.2 patch. This was just released at the end of September.

Also, a survey conducted earlier this year indicated that roughly 30% of you did not know that MapInfo Professional has built in graphing and charting capabilities. So, to rectify this have dedicated this month's "Rummaging in the Toolbox" section to introduce the MapInfo Professional Graph window.
