MapInfo Professional 10 adds new user interface

Pitney Bowes Business Insight has released MapInfo Professional Version 10.0, the latest iteration of the company’s flagship business mapping and analysis software.

More than 80 percent of corporate data includes a location component, the company said. MapInfo Professional incorporates this location mapping function and offers users visualization and analysis capabilities, a Pitney Bowes representative said.

The new version adds a redesigned user interface, access to an open-source database called PostGIS and support for layered PDF generation. Users also can use MapInfo Professional to tap into data stored in Microsoft SQL Server 2008, the company said.

In developing the new version, the company solicited feedback from hundreds of customers, said Michael Hickey, president of Pitney Bowes Business Insight.
