Back in 2009 I made a plugin for MapInfo Pro that stores views to make navigating between sites quicker and easier.
This was all well and good except that I couldn’t store the scale accurately. This meant that what should have been 1:1000 became 1:1001 and 1:5000 became 1:4983. It was weird but I’ve finally got around to giving it another go and I’m pleased to say that it now works perfectly!
Not only does it work but it works better, more accurately, more reliably and with less lines of code! [engaging smug mode]
The link below will direct you to a zip file on my website containing the MapInfo program as well as the source code. Feel free to distribute the file, just don’t charge anyone for it!
