Hi Marty, Typical GIS, their are several ways to create the circles but I found some create rather ragged results. I believe the smoothest circles are created using the following method: Open your bus points table, open the MapBasic window, set map and system units to miles. In the MapBasic window type: ...

​Hi Asko, You have just discovered that although MapInfo will work with table names that start with a number it does not like them which is why it adds an underscore at the start of the name. If you add an alpha character in front of the table name (eg. A260320_MSR_Vork_kohalik) the append will save ...

​Hi Anna, Although no longer the only way to create layers in SSA, I still prefer using Map Uploader from a Workspace. To change the layer title, all one needs to do is rename it in the MapInfo table of contents. To rename the classifications within the layer, create a thematic on the chosen attribute ...

​Hi Mustafa - sorry about the delay. Thanks for everything you supplied, I'm afraid developing a field solution has been put on the back-burner here at present.

In Exponare configuration manager it was possible to define which map context would be opened by default for each user​. Is there a way to emulate this behaviour in SSA? It seems that the first Map Project, in alphabetical order, is automatically opened with no way to choose another. ------------------------------ ...

​Since loading MapInfo Pro v2019 onto my server I have been receiving the following error message when I run my MapBasic programs. The message appears for about 5 seconds, then disappears and the program runs. After the program has run it appears again and remains until I click OK. The programs ...

​Hi Chris, The method I have used to add transparency to a WMS layer is: Login to SSA as Admin. Open the published map of the WMS layer, click on the extras (3 dots) icon adjacent and set the opacity to that required. Save the Project . ------------------------------ David Murphy GIS Officer Swan ...

​Hi Mustafa, Thank you for your reply, the user flow you have described really looks like the approach I need to use. If you could make Monica's extensibility sample available I would be most grateful. In answer to your question re how and where the data is saved, the spatial data will be accessed, edited and ...

​Hi Monica, Thank you for your reply. I have no problem displaying a photo using an info template in SSA, what I wish to do is connect a field in the edit template to the camera in the mobile device. Although a text field, this is defined as a photograph field in GBM Mobile. In the Edit Forms XML ...

​Hi Abdul, I recall an omission I made as an SSA newcomer that you might like to check. In Spatial Analyst Administrator go to the "Permissions" tab and ensure that "AnalystCouncil" role has been moved from "Available Roles" to "Assigned Roles" for the selected Map Configuration.

​Thank you for your reply, Monica. I shall keep it in mind when we decide to apply SSA 2018.2 and patches. I am following the SSA 2018.2 thread created by Stuart Carter and have decided to hold off on the update at present. All our Spectrum services are running well; "if it ain't broke, etc". ------ ...

​In SSA 12.0 an Info Template was supplied called "notSelectable.html" which could be used to stop information being returned for tables intended to be purely visual. Since the introduction of the Template Designer in SSA 12.2 this option seems to no longer be available. Has anyone discovered a way to ...

​Hi Jenny, I have had a similar error message and discovered the issue was actually with the table structure. Even if you delete all reference to the table in Spatial Manager it seems to remember it elsewhere which will mess things up if the slightest modification has been performed on your table. There ...
