  • 1.  Creating regular points along a polyline

    Posted 09-30-2021 11:20
    Hi

    I am trying to create regular points along polylines, using only MapInfo. I have 20+ polylines and want to create points every 100m on each of them.

    I am sure this used to exist, with the Distance Marker tool I think it was, but I can't find that for 64-bit.

    Any tips welcome.

    Many thanks :)

    Hi Caroline

    I normally use the great Toolbox tool from @Uffe Kousgaard to do this.

    ​You can download this in 32-bit as well as 64-bit from the link above.
    It comes with a range of very useful features all described in the link.

    Distance Marker tool was updated for x64 and is provided with MapBasic 19 download in the \samples\mapbasic\distancemarker folder.
    Cheers,

    Hi Bill

    I am frequently using Distance Marker and would like to test the 64-version. I found the files, but, sorry to say, don't know how to compile a mbx.

    Help appreciated

    Hi Caroline
    There is also the Segmenting function provided with MapCad - already installed.
