Toolbox for MapInfo

ToolBox is a collection of MapBasic programs for performing these tasks:
  • Add Nodes
  • Convex hull / Rubberband
  • Extended Table Info
  • Locate the nearest object in one table for all objects in another table – Very fast
  • Locate the N nearest object in one table for all objects in another table – Very fast
  • Location of facilities
  • Map Colouring
  • Minimum spanning tree
  • Remove holes from regions
  • Simplification of polylines/regions. This removes insignificant nodes from objects
  • Split of (poly)lines at predefined distances, e.g. for every 100 meters.
  • Split multi section polylines/regions into single sections
  • Triangulation (TIN)
  • Voronoi polygons
Requires MapInfo 4.5 or better. Download the free version (180 KB) to see and use it for yourself.
This is now unrestricted and free to use.

Add Nodes:

Convex hull / Rubberband:
Left: Normal centroid based rubberband, Right: Based on complete objects

Extended table information:

Location of facilities:

Map Coloring:

Minimum spanning tree:

Nearest Object (showing ID of nearest center):

Nearest Object (showing distance to nearest center):

Remove holes from regions:

Simplification of polylines/regions:
(The red line is the original dataset and the black is the new)

Split of line objects at predefined distances:
(Here for every 100 meters)


Voronoi polygons:

This is the final result of a voronoi analysis, which also involved several other tools from ToolBox:
