MapInfo Advanced Level Training - MI3

The advanced course is designed to develop the user’s knowledge of MapInfo beyond the simple definition of the commands. The intention is to aid the student in using MapInfo to develop effective analysis and reporting techniques through hands-on use of the software. The course is aimed specifically at users who will be responsible for the management of a MapInfo installation, and those responsible for interpreting requirements for operations in order to develop applications. Delegates are provided with a full training manual which may be kept for future reference.
Throughout the course we use examples from realistic business cases, and there is an opportunity at the end of the course for students to discuss the specifics of their business case with the trainer.

NB The Advanced applications course does not cover the basic tools and operations required to use MapInfo. Those applicants who are not yet fully conversant with the location and effect of each of the MapInfo tools should first attend the MI2 - MapInfo Foundation Course.

Cost: Please contact us for the cost of this course.

Advanced Applications Course Topics

An Introduction to workspaces - A brief look at workspaces, and the MapBasic window.

Advanced SQL queries - This part of the course develops the use of SQL beyond simple find and select statements to sub-queries including the use of join statements.

Geographic analysis techniques - Basic concepts of spatial analysis, with consideration to the types of enquiry relevant to modern business use. This section builds on the use of SQL to include the geographic operators.

Advanced thematic mapping - Thematic mapping is a powerful communicator of ideas and concepts behind data. This part of the course introduces concepts of thematic mapping designed to enhance the communication of these ideas.

Object Editing - Advanced techniques to aggregate data geographically and to divide data.

Using DBMS/ODBC to exchange data - Using Windows ODBC allows powerful links to be created with remote databases. Working with an Access database, the Database Management System routine and SQL queries are used to plot data directly into MapInfo.

Using raster and AutoCAD images - MapInfo allows raster images to be opened, but can also be used to register these geographically so that they work with vector data. AutoCAD drawings can also be imported into MapInfo.

This course is recognised by the AGI and carries 8 CPD Points
