MapInfo Data Creation Training - MI5

The Data Creation course is designed to develop the user's knowledge of MapInfo Professional to encompass the skills and knowledge required for the specific task of data capture. The intention is to give the student the information required to capture geographic data from a variety of sources efficiently, effectively and accurately. The course is aimed specifically at users who will be involved in the capturing, storing and retrieving of data.

Whilst attendance on the MapInfo Foundation course (MI2) is useful it is by no means required. However a working knowledge of MapInfo Professional is fundamental (e.g. How to open and close files, dealing with multiple windows, layer control etc)

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.

The course covers all aspects of data capture including drawing objects, completing attribute information and many hints and tricks on how to draw faster and more accurately all types of map objects. The course also looks at data cleansing and some of the tools included in MapInfo to ensure the best possible results from your data.

Like all of CDR's training courses the Data Creation course is fully "hands on" with each delegate using a dedicated PC with the latest software versions installed. Comprehensive course notes are issued to each delegate at the start of the course for no extra cost.

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