MapInfo is a high performance Microsoft Windows®-based mapping and geographic analysis tool that has proved highly beneficial to the telecom industry when planning the positioning of network infrastructure – with regard to both new deployments and the upgrading of existing system resources. Designed to easily visualise the relationships between data and physical location, it helps telecom operators to acquire valuable information which will assist them in making authoritative strategic decisions.

This allows boundaries, highways, cabling and fibre lines to be identified in order to assist in the planning process. Users can also aggregate values utilising statistical or mathematical functions to associate a symbol or a colour with a point/region based on a these values - so that geographical trends can be uncovered.

This means it can be integrated directly into a company’s existing IT framework without any additional costs being accrued. By providing many CAD data creation and editing tools, as well as the ability to edit tabular data, this innovative software platform enables users to make changes to maps and figures in one single application – thereby minimising the time and effort involved. As MapInfo seamlessly integrates across an array of different applications, it is easy to share exported data.
