MapBasic®: Customize MapInfo Pro

The MapBasic development environment is a freely downloadable programming language for MapInfo Pro. It can be used for any sort of customization from simply hiding or rearranging a few menus to creating comprehensive mapping applications. Knowledge of programming is helpful but if you are new to programming, MapBasic provides extensive on-line help, documentation and sample applications.


Easy to learn and use

MapBasic comes with a simple development environment and includes a detailed help system. In addition a comprehensive MapBasic User’s Guide and Reference Manual are also included. A range of sample applications, from simple demonstration examples and code snippets to complex applications are also provided.

A range of applications

MapBasic can be used for automating repetitive tasks, adding new capabilities to MapInfo Professional or even creating specific mapping solutions for a particular use or industry. An example of adding a new capability to MapInfo Pro is the Distance Calculator tool, pictured here. The Distance Calculator is one of the many tools in MapInfo Pro’s Tool Manager.

Source code from the experts.

The default installation of MapInfo Pro includes a number of useful tools and utilities in the Tool Manager. Source code for nearly all of these tools is provided with MapBasic. Also, you can add your own MapBasic applications to the Tool Manager so they are always available with a few clicks. You can even specify your MapBasic applications to run by default when you start MapInfo Pro.

User-generated tools.

MapBasic allows the development of software in popular programming languages such as C, C++ and Visual Basic to help automate repetitive operations in MapInfo Pro. Hundreds of third party applications have been created using this flexible development environment, many of which are offered to the MapInfo Community for free.
