MapInfo 32 to 64-bit Transition
The move to 64-bit has produced MapInfo software that looks radically different to its 32-bit predecessor. CDR wants to help you transition smoothly and painlessly to 64-bit so that you can benefit from all of the additional features it has to offer. We want to help you get the most out of your GIS software.
CDR has taken the steps to design a one day course to help users of previous versions migrate their skills over to the new 64-bit interface. The course covers all aspects of the new interface and explains where you may gain advantage. Typically, version releases of MapInfo Pro have not really warranted a full day training but it is obvious from our experience and user feedback that the 64-bit interface is worthy of spending time getting to grips with it.
The 32-bit toolbars (above) and 64-bit ribbons (below) look quite different and take some re-learning.
Like all of CDR’s training courses the 32 to 64-bit Transition course is fully “hands on” with each delegate using a dedicated PC with the latest software versions installed (v17). Comprehensive course notes are issued to each delegate at the start of the course for no extra cost.

32 to 64-bit Transition Course Topics
Working with the new ribbons, custom toolbars, keyboard shortcuts and QuickSearch box.
Behind the Scenes
An explanation of those enhancements that you are never too sure of and are not immediately visible.
New Tools and Data Formats
The new DriveTime tool, Extended Tab format, additional .WOX and .WOR workspace files and the Multi Resolution Raster (MRR) format.
Layouts and Layout Templates
The new layout templates which allow you to save, export and import custom layouts. We will also look at SmartText that can now be added to layouts to automatically add in 'date', 'user', 'company', 'map name' and more.
The new Theme ribbon, interactive ranges and settings and the new extensively researched colour palettes.
To The Office
We will finish off the day by giving you the opportunity to discuss the migration of specific GIS functionality with the trainer, allowing you to apply your 64-bit transition knowledge back in the office.
Whilst attendance on the MapInfo Foundation course (MI2) is useful it is by no means required. However a working knowledge of MapInfo Pro is fundamental (e.g. How to open and close files, dealing with multiple windows, layer control etc). Brand new users of MapInfo should consider our two-day Foundation course which also teaches 64-bit v17.
