Creating Beautiful Maps Quickly with MapInfo Pro Advanced

Posted by Jacob Pescini on 03-Sep-2015 13:26:37

Previously we wrote about MapInfo Pro Advanced and specifically focused on the performance of the .MRR file format and the 64bit platform.

The ease comes essentially from the ability to instantly preview and apply colour, sun-shading and highlighting effects to the grid files we’ve been working with. As the rendering is instantaneous it is really easy to apply the little tweaks that can take maps from the so-so to the wow.

In this post we’re going to run through the process that we undertook to build the map that provides the backdrop to the image at the top of this post.
