Robust Automation for Distance Calculation
Calculate to Nearest Object
With SGSI’s Distance Calculator,™ you are not limited to point-to-point measurements. Select any two map tables as Inputs, including point tables or region tables. You can measure by nearest object, or measure between two points, regions or polylines.
Compute Distance to Nearest Region Edge
Unlike other MapInfo tools, if an origin point is located within a destination region, SGSI’s Distance Calculator™ gives you output options. Reports generate the distance to region as either zero (0) or as the distance to nearest inside edge: i.e., “distance within.”
Calculate distances for a subset of records.
If you’re working with big data tables, there’s no need to calculate a distance for all records. SGSI Distance Calculator™can automate this process on Selected record sets as well as with complete tables. Use standard MapInfo Professional commands to select the records of interest, and then specify Selections, instead of full tables, in the Distance Calculator™dialog.
