|Gearing up for MI Pro version 15.2 |
The second thing to mention is that v15.2 is scheduled to be released at the end of October. This will be concurrent with the second release of our new raster grid add-on for MapInfo Pro. We had been referring to this new offering as "MapInfo Pro Raster" but we have decided to rename it "MapInfo Pro Advanced". We like this name better as it leaves open the possibility of adding additional capabilities beyond raster grid visualisation and analysis. Stayed tuned to this journal to see how this unfolds!
| ||So if you missed the last couple of issues, let me first mention that v15.2 is the next 64 bit release of MapInfo Pro. We decided not to have the 32 bit and 64 bit releases use the same main version number. This should help to avoid confusion with patch releases and in other ways. |
In this issue we have announced a new web seminar to help people familiar with the 32 bit interface of MapInfo Pro become productive with the new ribbon based user interface.
As usual we have a selection of tips, tricks, techniques and advice for using MapInfo Pro in this issue. The Easy Tip this month is a technique for using Bing maps to make nicer looking maps. For those of you using MapInfo Pro v15.0 an article with details on the new "Friendly Names" capability might be of interest.
In the "Get on the Grid" section, there is a discussion of the raster formats and the convert capability of MapInfo Pro Advanced. Finally, the Query Ninja returns with a useful technique for selecting all the records in a table that do not have an object.
As always, please forward this to any MapInfo Pro users who might benefit from learning more about the software.
