MapGuide Studio Importing MapInfo Files

256 Views, 1 Replies

I am currently using MapGuide to build an interactive demographic mapping and reporting engine but I am have a few issues. We primarily use mapinfo so all our base data is in TAB format. I translated all the data to SHP files. When I try to bring in our BlockGroups layer (205,000 Polygons with data about 1.5gb) MapGuide studio locks up on me. It also happens when I try to bring in the major roads for all the US.

Next another issue with projection. All of our projections are Lat/Lon Nad 83 degrees. MapInfo gives you an option to display the data in Sq Miles. Is there anyway to do that in MapGuide Studio. Thanks for hearing me out.

This is the forum for commercial MapGuide 6.5 and below. The only public
support mechanism for MapGuide Studio is currently through the OSGeo
MapGuide users email list at osgeo.org. See this page:
https://mapguide.osgeo.org/servlets/ProjectMailingListList to sign yourself
up. You can also search the archives where a lot questions like this have
been asked in the past.
