A different perspective: How zoom-level data is advancing vertical insights

Posted by Jacob Pescini on 26-Jun-2018 10:12:37

Imagine you’re in outer space looking down. Below you are great expanses of green and blue, representing the land and sea. Zoom in and you begin so see the detail in the topography—mountains, rivers, plains. Zoom in further and cities and country sides are visible. Zoom in once more and you see livestock in the fields, cars stopped at traffic lights, and people entering and exiting buildings.

MapInfo Pro v17 is here and it's stronger, smarter and simpler thanks to you.

Posted by Caitlin McDougall on 14-May-2018 10:29:00

The process of refining MapInfo Pro™ v17 was a little different than past processes. This time Pitney Bowes enlisted numerous beta users who tried and tested MapInfo Pro, working collaboratively to provide feedback through Li360 on what they loved, what they wanted to see more or less of, and how they wanted the solution to work for them.

The result? A new MapInfo Pro that is more user-friendly, faster and powerful than ever before.

Introducing New Zealand's first nationally-standardised Emergency Management Basemap.

Posted by Steve Critchlow on 05-Apr-2018 14:14:29

As a part of the NZGIS4EM community, lately my attention has been on how our organisation can make a difference to emergency managers and services in New Zealand by utilising geospatial data.

It soon became clear to me that the data these teams and organisations needed was something that we already had and have been supplying to our customers for many years.

So, we did some research on what datasets were of the highest priority to emergency managers and teams throughout NZ and, using one of the NationalMap basemaps, created the EM Basemap.

Posted by Caitlin McDougall on 03-Jul-2017 09:38:59

Bad address data: ever the invisible dilemma for many organisations. Why? It's something that is essentially intangible but, at the same time, something that can wreak havoc on a company's time, revenue, and reputation. It's one heck of a hidden cost - in every sense of the word.

How to access the latest Aerial Imagery for New Zealand in MapInfo Pro.

Posted by Jacob Pescini on 20-Feb-2017 10:00:00

Web Map Tile Services (WMTS) are a great way to both serve and consume large ‘read-only’ datasets such as aerial imagery as basemaps in both desktop and web mapping applications. Their usability derives from the process of building a cache of tiled images once and then only serving up a small set of only the required map images when requested by the application such as MapInfo Pro.
