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.

One of the most underused but powerful tool sets in MapInfo Professional are the MapCAD tools. MapCAD is a powerful set of “CAD like” drawing tools that extend the standard MapInfo Professional drawing functionalities to make working with graphical objects even easier.

Since version 9.5 of MapInfo Pro, uses have had access to 40+ for designing and manipulating map objects. With the move to the ribbon interface in v12.5 The MapCAD tools were revised and integrated into the default ribbon tabs when the tool is run.
