Use a Map Created in MapInfo Professional

A typical early step when developing an application to interact with the Location Intelligence Module in Spectrumâ„¢ Technology Platform is to bring a map that you have created in MapInfo Professional into the Spectrum Spatial repository.

This is done by using a MapInfo Professional plug-in called Map Uploader. This utility will convert the information in a map window into the appropriate named resources that Spectrum Spatial can understand and adds them to the Spectrum Spatial repository. There are three types of named resources that can be uploaded with Map Uploader: maps, tables and layers.
Note: The data used to create the map in MapInfo Professional must be located on the system running Spectrum Spatial.
