Disperse points not displaying results in MapInfo v17.0.02

    Hi all,

    Is there a trick on getting the disperse points to work in MapInfo v17.0.02? I've tried it from the Spatial>Transform toolbar and from the Tool Manager window with unsuccessful results. I've tried all disperse methods and also changing the zoom levels high and low but the markers do not budge.

    Hi Jeffrey,

    The Disperse Point tool in MapInfo Pro works only on points that are at the same location. One of the points is left on the location and the others are dispersed as per the method you choose to disperse. Quite possibly, there could be no points at the same location.

    ​Thank you so much Shweta. Your reply clarified my assumption of points overlapping depending on the zoom level not of exact points. Now I will try marquee selecting those overlapping points then aligning vertically and horizontally and finally rediserpering.
    Many thanks,
    Jeff
