Hello,I'm a new community member keen to learn how MapInfo has come along over the past decade.
I used to be a daily MI user, producing maps for enforcement teams within community safety partnerships across London, UK. I'm familiar with MapInfo 9.5, the old Hotspot Detective plugin and similar from that era.
I've recently started using GIS again at work but for entirely different purposes. Now I'm into logistics and planning - how many jobs can I get done with a finite number of colleagues spread out over the UK with varying levels of attributes/skills.
So, my initial question is this: does anyone use the inbuilt geocoding facility in MI?When I used MI previously the data would be geocoded separately and pulled into MI once eastings and northings had been applied. But time has passed and I was hoping the onboard capability had been improved.
So if anyone can let me know how they geocode their data for use within MI I would be very grateful. My current dataset is about 7000 records small, all UK addresses (mainly domestic with a few commercial thrown in). The dataset will grow, but only periodically and not in huge numbers. The data is kept on an SQL database but can be lifted to an excel worksheet if required.
Looking forward to learning from this community.
Thank you peter.
