I'm a sql developer who hasn't used GIS before.
From what I can tell MapInfo (Exponare) keeps it's data in tab files.
I need to write views (in SQL Server) that will take 95% of it's info from a sql table but needs to join to the mapping data to collect the other 5%
The 2 datasets have a common key so that is fine.
Writing a query in mapinfo that selects data from a sql table is fine (via odbc) but the other way around?
Where would I start?
Linked tables within SQL (that isn't a sql table)??
