Assistant for migration of MapInfo data
to ArcGIS

Conversion and direct reading of MapInfo data in ArcGIS

TAB Reader provides features for importing and preserving symbology and rendering properties, attributes
and information about coordinate system allowing to easily perform data migration from MapInfo to ArcGIS.

The option of viewing and direct reading of TAB files and MapInfo workspaces in ArcCatalog, as well as exporting feature classes to TAB files provide tight integration of MapInfo data into ArcGIS environment.

TAB Reader Uniqueness

Direct Reading of MapInfo Data in ArcGIS

TAB Reader provides functionality of direct reading of MapInfo data in ArcGIS. TAB and WOR files are accessible from Catalog and can be opened in ArcMap using drag-and-drop operation without preliminary conversion to ArcGIS data formats. 

Retention of MapInfo Symbols

Data reading and import using TAB Reader are performed with retention of native rendering and symbology properties, whereas other solutions with similar functionality do not preserve initial map objects display properties during data import.

Importing MapInfo workspaces and data

MapInfo workspaces may contain map description, display symbology and feature labels. The unique TAB Reader functionality for importing workspaces enables transfer of complete WOR file data to ArcGIS map. In turn, TAB files are also imported with preserved coordinate system, rendering, and symbology properties.
