Thematic Map & Filter

    Hello and Happy New Year!

    I have created a Thematic Map based upon the ownership of an item.
    I can visualize only one owner but I don't think I can export this "filter" to Google Earth.

    When I select the items it will select all of them or so it seems?

    Any Ideas on how to filter data quickly?

    I have workarounds but not necessarily fast ones :)

    Kind Regards

    Georges

    Yes, that's correct, Georges.

    The ability to turn on and off the individual bins/values, is handled by MapInfo Pro. If you export the entire layer to Google Earth, all the values will get exported, not only the visible values.

    A few workarounds
    Export as Image:
    This will create a screnshot of the current view in MapInfo Pro and so only show the currently visible bins/values.

    Select the records of the bin:
    You could use Select, SQL Select or the Filter option in a browser window to filter out and select the bin/value you are interested in. Once you have selected the records with the desired value, the Export to Google Earth option will only export the selected records.
    A nice improvement to MapInfo Pro would be the ability to right-click a bin in the Layer Control and do "Select all records from bin". But unfortunately you'd have use a workaround for now.

    Thank you very much for the detailed answer.

    I will try the workaround.

    It would also be very much ok if Google Earth would use the color scheme of the thematic layer, but alas every point get's the same color and symbol.

    Cheers
