Powerful User Interface

User Interface

You're going to love the modern look and feel of v16.0 64-bit. Ribbon-style toolbars bring the software into line with other standard products, and a whole raft of new tools make working with MapInfo fast and easy.

Dynamic Map Output

Dynamic Output

The maps in v16 are better looking than ever before. Advanced options include dynamic scale bars, improved performance of analytics such as proportion overlap, inclusion of BING aerial imagery, export to layered PDF files for sharing and distribution, and completely new thematic mapping interface.

Enhanced Data Access

Now you can access even more data where it lives. MapInfo Professional v16 makes the most of your IT investments with support for open source PostGIS, Microsoft SQL Server and SQLite, MS Excel and Access, Bing Imagery, as well as support for OGC WFS, WMTS and Geopackage data.

Simple-to-use Layer Control

Dramatically reduce your clicks, clutter, effort and time. Access layers effortlessly. Drag and drop between layers and group layers. Apply changes to multiple layers at once. Apply changes to layers from different maps. Quickly preview changes and discard if necessary. View open tables and browsers from the layer control. And more.

In v12.5 we saw improvements in the design of MapInfo:

  • Sort or filter data directly in the browser window, reducing the need for complex SQL queries
  • Labelling has improved beyond recognition 
  • Better control over the Legend Window 
  • In-window editing using the layout window
  • Easily publish maps to the cloud to share analysis with colleagues or customers using MapInfo Stratus, an integral part of the MapInfo Suite.
