MapInfo Pro™ Advanced, an innovative mapping application created by Pitney Bowes, delivers next generation raster visualization, processing, and data storage capabilities in a fully integrated, user friendly software package.
MapInfo Pro™ Advanced elevates the comprehensive capabilities of MapInfo Pro – a world leading desktop mapping and Geographical Information System (GIS) into a next generation raster visualization and analysis solution. MapInfo Pro™ Advanced enables regular PC users to manage and consume massive volumes of virtually any raster (imagery) data encompassing aerial imagery, spectral and hyperspectral imagery from satellites, planes or drones, continuously varying measurements including elevation, temperature, moisture or potential fields and classified imagery where each raster cell is linked to multi-dimensional attribute information table. It provides a comprehensive set of process and analytical tools which enable anyone from those with minimal training to those with GIS technology expertise, to interpret and integrate this data and combine it with other enterprise data and services to solve complex problems and gain deeper business insights.
MapInfo Pro™ Advanced utilises a new, industry first, raster compression format called Multi Resolution Raster (MRR) which provides incredibly fast processing, visualisation and analysis of high resolution grid and imagery data, even when working at a global scale. It allows huge imagery data sets (such as satellite and aerial imagery) to be compressed so that it is extremely fast to work with. This type of technology has not been available before in the GIS industry and is a world first.
In addition to MapInfo Pro™ Advanced, Pitney Bowes has developed a comprehensive Software Development Kit (SDK) that encapsulates all of the power of the core raster processing engine so customers can extend the capabilities of MapInfo Pro™ Advanced even further or build their own software products which can leverage the ease of use and scalability of the new raster processing engine and innovative storage format.

The Australian Business Awards are an annual comprehensive awards program which recognises organisations that demonstrate the core values of business innovation, product innovation, technological achievement and employee engagement via a set of business and product award categories. The Australian Business Awards are the national chapter of an integrated, hierarchical leadership program conducted on a national and international level. Eligible organisations participate in the international chapter of the program at The World Business Awards. Conducted annually, The World Business Awards seeks to engage with the world’s business, innovation and technology leaders through a global recognition and knowledge building initiative that is underpinned by the program’s established framework. The program engages with organisations worldwide to benchmark the full spectrum of their products, services and initiatives and to review their business performance. The cycle culminates in the recognition and celebration of organisations that implement world-class business initiatives, projects, products and services.
Organisations that participate are provided with the unique opportunity to benchmark themselves against the top performers globally. The recipients are acknowledged for their achievements and identified as the elite of their industry earning a place amongst a distinguished group by having their projects, initiatives, products, services, contributions and achievements being recognised on a prominent and far-reaching scale. The program provides the ultimate platform for building knowledge, increasing brand awareness, equity, loyalty and retention through increased exposure, recognition and prestige. This establishes a valuable resource that can be used extensively to create opportunities for publicity, positive organisational profiling and heightened brand awareness within the respective industries both nationally and internationally.
