Is there way to connect mapinfo with bing or google map. I have done this with mapinfo 10.5 but could not find it with mapinfo 10.


Support for Bing Map is built into 10.5. You can even see the TAB and XML file, which defines the connection, if you look into the tileserver folder in the installation folder.

  • Sorry the version was mistaken – kinkajou Aug 9 '11 at 8:51
  • You can see from the TAB file header in 10.5, that it requires 10.5 as a minimum. It would take a lot of work to do it in 10.0 and I have no idea how. Possibly via a WMS proxy or something. – Uffe Kousgaard Aug 9 '11 at 9:12
  • Is it even legal to use their imagery without paying for the license like ESRI does? – MLowry Aug 9 '11 at 14:07

    @MLowry both MapInfo and ESRI have licensed BING imagery - users can use - license is built into the software costs. 9.3 was a separate license - 9.3.1 was built in. – Mapperz Aug 9 '11 at 14:42
  • I believe PBBI is paying for the access somehow on behalf of MapInfo users. I don't know what ESRI does. – Uffe Kousgaard Aug 9 '11 at 14:46
