New Features in MapInfo Pro v.16

Improved Thematics
These new map theme capabilities give you more control over how your maps display.

  •  Theme Bin Control In Layer Control: Ranged themes display within the Layer Control. You can selectively turn bins on or off to easily highlight only the data that you want to draw attention to.

  •  Ribbon Controls: Theme manipulation is now done on a new THEME ribbon (tab). This makes many theme editing tasks much easier and in most cases eliminates the need to use dialogs.

  •   ColorBrewer©: We have added ColorBrewer palettes for Ranged and Individual value themes. Ranged themes supports Sequential and Diverging color schemes. Individual themes support Qualitative color schemes. For details about ColorBrewer, see

  •    Dynamic Themes: Now change aspects of a theme as you go to try different settings until you get the one you want. For single variable themes, you can change the theme field without having to recreate the theme.

Data and Web Services
Support for more data sources and made improvements on how you work with data.

  •   WMTS 1.0: MapInfo Pro now reads tile sets from WMTS 1.0 servers. The Web Services Preferences dialog box has a new tab called WMTS to set preferences for working with WMTS servers.

  •   WFS 2.0: MapInfo Pro now supports WFS 1.0, 1.1, and 2.0.

  •    FME 2016: An update to the Universal Data Import for FME 2016 includes bug fixes and enhancements. The new FME supports following additional formats: OS MasterMap Database, OS VectorMap District, and OS VectorMap Local.

  •   Geocoding: You can sign up for an account to receive 1000 credits per month to use with the online Global Geocoder in the Pitney Bowes Commerce Cloud. Our Premium  Services customers receive 2000 credits per month. On the PRO tab, select Geocoding, and then click Sign Up Now.

  •   Geopackage: MapInfo Pro supports reading, editing, and creating GeoPackage feature tables. GeoPackage is an open, OGC standards-based, and platform-independent format for transferring geospatial information based on SQLite database.

  •   Packing Tables: In most cases, tables can now be packed as you go without disruption to the existing workspace.

  •   MapInfo EasyLoader: MapInfo EasyLoader is now a 64-bit application that uses the same drives and connections as 64-bit MapInfo Pro. It includes these improvements:

    • Selectively create, replace, or append individual files in a batch
    • Display status of each file upload operation
    • Show progress bar for each file and overall progress
    • Append multiple tables together

We have included more features for working with raster layers. For a full description of the these features, see the MapInfo Pro Advanced Help available from the RASTER tab.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

  •   Legend:  Adds legends for MapInfo Advanced raster layers for both continuous and classified grid types. For best results, choose one of the Legend Mapping modes in the Raster Display preferences. On the MAP tab, in the Content group, click Add To Map and then Legend.

  •    Create Raster: Has new options, Nearest Neighbor and Natural Neighbor. Improvements and fixes have been made to the existing gridding options: Data Conditioning, Clipping, Interpolating Polylines, and Grid Origin and Extent.

  •   Raster Quality: Improves a raster’s appearance when the map is zoomed in beyond the maximum resolution of a raster layer. Several options reduce pixelation depending on the data and individual preference.

  •  Interactive Line of Sight: Extracts cell values interactively along a line, or checks visibility from a given point to a target point.

  •   Volume: The volume tool is used to calculate volume of a surface above or below a constant (horizontal) plane at a specific elevation. It can compute the volume between two Volume rasters, or between one raster and a constant Z value. Computes the volume of raster between:
    • A constant plane
    • Two raster layers

  •  Export: Export Ability to export an input raster into a MapInfo TAB file format.
  •  Create Raster Multifile: If you want to use a large number of files for interpolation, you can use Create Raster Multifile from the Create Raster tool.
  •   Filter Added new filters:• Focal filter which is an image enhancement techniques that enables you to
    process an image to improve its appearance.
    • Classified Filter which reclassifies the small isolated areas of cells (regions) in
    a classified raster. It allows you to specify a minimum region size, all region
    smaller than the specified size will be merged with the largest neighboring class
    in the output file.
  •  Data conditioning: This allows you to filter your input data before executing the interpolation. Data Filtering enables you to clean the input data by removing invalid data from input dataset. This is useful if you have a huge dataset but you wish to perform interpolation for selected data only.
