OK, there might actually be another solution to this as well - but it requires some MapBasic programming skills. You can create a MapBasic tool with a SelChangedHandler that reacts to the selection the user makes. When ever he selects from a layer you don't want him to select from, you unselects everything. Personally I would find this kind of tool ...

I'm assuming that you have a table with the cross connections, right? If so, you can loop this table and for each record: Get the RowID of current record: nRowID = CROSS_CONNECTIONS.ROWID Select the matching record from the input table, extract the CentroidX() and CentroidX() nID = CROSS_CONNECTIONS.INPUT_ID Select CentroidX(OBJ) "X", CentroidY(OBJ) ...

It was an error later in my code: I forgot to separate in instance of nMID from the run command string (I didn't have the "&" symbols before it) so it was referring to this instance.

Whilst as Peter says there is no way to snap to a non selectable layer, you can hide the fact that objects are selected by removing their selection style in Options->Preferences->Styles. That way your end users won't notice any difference when they click on your background mapping.

No, in MapInfo a layer must be selectable for you to be able to select, trace and get information about it thru the Map window. You can of course limit the number of layers that are selectable but you then also limit which layers can be traced.

In MapInfo, regions include the set of polygons, rectangles, and ellipses. Don't ask why they consider rectangles to be a special type of polygon, I'll never figure that out. However, I think you've misread the tool. It actually says "Convert to Polylines." See this post for more information about MapInfo Map Object Types.

Perhaps another tool you can try using is the Check Geometry validity (Vector > Geometry Tools > Check Geometry Validity). I think this tool also checks for dangles but I'm not sure, you cannot select which type of errors you want to search for. But it does allow you to save the locations of those errors as a point shapefile: Hope this helps!

Inside an MPK you'll find an MXD and a fGDB. (You may find shapefiles, tiffs or other files depending on how the MPK was created, but odds are you'll find data in the fGDB). With this knowledge, if you have an application other than ArcGIS that can read MXDs and fGDB, you can simply unzip an MPK (using something like 7zip) to get at the contents. As for a ...

I have been working on the team at PiinPoint since last year, and the reason I got involved with the them is because they wanted to solve this use case. Piinpoint is a web based SAAS platform with data included. We have built out a core of site analysis tools, but try to make sure that the interface is approachable by everyone on a real estate team, not ...

So thanks to an answer from Mike T to this question, I used listgeo to create TFW files to replicate the geodata that already exists in the TIFs. listgeo -tfw x.tif # FTW Once I did that, MapInfo behaved like a post-Y2K piece of software (although "drag'n'drop" functionality is still beyond it).

Okay, I'll give one of your questions an answers: Sorting the radii descending: If you only have your sectors in the cosmetic layer, save the cosmetic objects into a new table via Map > Save Cosmetic Layer... Go to Query > SQL Select and fill in the dialog like this: Select Columns: Area(OBJ, "sq m") "Area_sqm", COL1 From Tables: <your radii table> ...
