    Hi all, if you have the requirement to register scanned maps in to your existing workspaces you may understand that the image accuracy in relation to your other datasets can be affected by the condition of the paper that the map was on and geometric inaccuracies introduced during the scanning process.  These small differences can add up to significant positional inaccuracies.  Avoid this issue by using the warping tool in MapInfo Pro Advanced to remove geometric distortion inherent in the map scan and restore it to its accurate original shape and position.

    See this interesting article by Shweta Shukla describing the process.
