Description

Experience Level: Expert
We are a small IT and marketing consultancy and have been invited by a client to produce 500 x A3 PDF maps for them showing a different 'You Are Here' location in GB and 10 nearest other points of interest. Whilst we can set up these maps in MapInfo the prosepct of manually setting up and printing each of the 500 maps is going to be costly in terms of time and money.

We would like to know costs for creating a Mapbasic macro which can take a template map that we create and a list of the 500 locations with their nearest 10 Points of Interest as a MapInfo table and create these maps.

The MapInfo table containing the nearest locations would be created using a MapInfo toolbox and would create 10 records for each location - one record each for the 10 nearest Points of Interest to the main location. Ideally the macro would need to cyle through this table and for each location fit the 10 nearest POI's to the map window (maybe then with the zoom scale increased by 10-20%) and then save the map as an A3 PDF file.

Example maps and data files can be supplied on request.

PLease note, we have not been awarded this work yet but we need to know at least ball park estimates for the above macro development to be able to fully quote and secure the job.

If you have any questions regarding the project then please let me know directly.
