Pros: Mapinfo presents a good option for those who wish to work with an average cost owner GIS, with tools for generating and editing objects, loading data associated with objects, updating data, including arithmetic procedures resulting from the link of multiple variables, linking with robust databases, among other basic things.
In addition to the above, a very valid option to convert polygons to lines, extract the vertices of those lines and return them points, generate polygons based on points obtained from GPS or polygonal decreed by means of laws
In addition you can generate thematic maps based on qualities attached to the objects and their form of representation, with the aim of covering various objectives, determining areas of influence, algebra of polygons, areas of influence of market points by means of Voronoi methods , also called Thiessen polygons.
Through the Universal Translator module you can import or export vector data, converting .mif or .tab formats to .shp .dwg .dgn formats, considering the projection system defined for the original file.

Cons: The handling of the print design is complicated, as well as maintaining a workspace without errors, the automatic labeling of layers can overlap if the configuration is not handled by scales, the representation of the data in 3D is deficient if the acquisition of the special module for that. The management of the compilation of files in directories and subdirectories should be as orderly as possible, since a detail in the wrong transfer of a workspace can completely cancel the work done, it is not easy to define the conditions of plotting
You must have a lot of experience with the software so that you do not waste time in details, because MapInfo grants many attributions to the user, that if he does not know about the theory that supports the program, he can fall into many errors of representation or calculation.
The process for granting you a trial license is complex and tends to give an error.

A great GIS option

Comments: Mapinfo has a great set of tools that other GIS software does not have, one of this is the Spider Graphic who allows to make connection between a point in the space with many others and know what are the influence or some spatyal variables, in our case we use this to know where are the theaters that the peoples use to go and where they live, we this data we can calculate and average of time to take to the public to get to the theater.

Pros: Mapinfo offers everything a GIS user needs, simple interphase, a lot of tools, the capacity to work with huge amount of data, and modelling extension to do 3D analyst. The best of Mapinfo it is work with its attribute table they are easier to job in comparison with another GIS system, knowing some codes you can easily add attributes and modify the information of your spatyal data.

Cons: Through the times Mapinfo it has been a little behind of software more expensives like ArcGIS, they are improve a lot, but for some people they are still a Desktop Mapping not a full software GIS, but this version has shows that Mapinfo it is not so far to of ArcGIS or any other software in the market.
