About the Workshop

SGC’s introductory course is for people with little or no knowledge of MapInfo Pro GIS mapping software. The course will begin with an overview of some basic GIS terms, then we will complete a series of hands-on exercises that will familiarise users with opening and displaying different types of GIS data, making data selections and queries, through to editing and creating new data. We can get you started with the current MapInfo Pro 32-bit version on an SGC workstation or you can bring your own laptop with MapInfo already installed. This course is a must for anyone who wants to learn the basics of MapInfo and utilise our tips and tricks to confidently make great maps.

  • Getting started in MapInfo
  • Exploring the Layer Control
  • Navigating around map windows
  • Opening and registering windows
  • How to digitise, create and edit data
  • Working with browsers
  • Querying data
