I am currently using MapInfo and have several large Ordnance Survey datasets, which require updating. They are tiled .tiffs and need to first, be registered as .tab files. Second the .tab files need to be imported to mapinfo and thirdly turned into a seamless table.
The process I used is quite longwinded:
I copy the paths of the .tiff files and paste into excel and build the columns around it to create this line for each file e.g.
**Register Table "X:\Ordnance Survey\25k_raster\nx\nx15.tif" type "raster" into "X:\Ordnance Survey\25k_raster\nx\nx15.tab**
I add this list to the workspace file using a text editor and then I build a line in excel which then opens each of the tab files e.g.
**Open Table "X:\Ordnance Survey\25k_raster\nx\nx15.tab" As nx15 Interactive**
I add this second list to the bottom of the workspace file, save then open the workspace. It takes a while but eventually it has registered and opened all the files. I then proceed to create a new seamless table from the open tables in mapinfo.
I guess my question is. How do you do this kind of import with mapinfo? do you know of or use any tools which would do this process for you? Maybe you have a quicker workaround?
