We’re excited to announce that Pitney Bowes, a partner of Spatial Insights and a provider of many of our software and data products, has released the latest version of MapInfo Professional. This new release, version 17, is equipped with scores of improvements and updated features that simplify the user experience to help increase productivity.

Hello, User!

Upon opening MapInfo Pro v17, you’ll be greeted by a new welcome window. This window is designed to help users in different ways – with tips, tools, tutorials, and sample workspaces to help a new user get accustomed to the interface, one-click access to recent files to get you mapping faster, and access to the Li360 User Community allowing you to share ideas, insights and knowledge with other users.

Learn as you work

With the new “Quick Search” window, if you can’t seem to find a tool that you used frequently in an old version, you can search for it by simply typing a few words related to what you’re looking for. The “Quick Search” will provide results, corresponding commands, and where to find that tool in the future. It’s a great way to learn your way around v17 without having to slow down.

Achieve new agility

MapInfo Pro v17 offers improvements to hot-keys and gives you the ability to customize mini-toolbars, putting your most-used tools and commands just a right-click or keystroke away. Thematic mapping has become more interactive – giving you the power to change theme variables or turn on ranges and values with ease. All these enhancements bring a new level of flexibility to the software.

Enrich your data

Geocoding and drive-times or drive-distances are now available on a pay-as-you-go basis directly inside MapInfo, making it quick and easy to expand your insight and visualize your data like never before.

These are just a few of the powerful capabilities of version 17 of MapInfo Professional. If you are interested in purchasing a new license or upgrading your current one, or if you’d simply like to learn more, please don’t hesitate to contact us. You can also call us at 1-800-347-5291.
