Location Intelligence GISIt’s not surprising that businesses are tapping into location-based analytics. Marketers are using location information to send customized messages to on-the-go customers. Insurance carriers are using location information to conduct more comprehensive risk assessments before drafting policies.

And it’s just the beginning.

Between 2012 and 2022, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics anticipates steady growth in jobs that require familiarity with GIS and location intelligence, including geographers (29 percent), cartographers and photogrammetrists (20 percent) and surveying and mapping technicians (14 percent). Many new organizations will harness the power of location intelligence for the first time.

Given all this buzz, it’s important that GIS professionals all over the world, no matter their skill level, have access to an easy-to-use mapping solution. The latest evolution of MapInfo Professional, Version 12.5, is that tool.

With MapInfo Professional v12.5, released June 2014 in a 32-bit version and expected October 2014 in a 64-bit version, users are better able to visualize and execute stunning maps that inform strategic decisions.
