BosqMap 1.2 Ranking & Summary
BosqMap 1.2 description
BosqMap 1.2 provides you with a great tool which gives you an easy way to edit and view data, documents and photos in MapInfo
BosqMap uses dynamic dialog boxes to display data in a standardised format with multiple options for data entry and viewing. It has been designed for use in the office and in the field and simplifies MapInfo data entry and collection and minimises the scope for user error.
BosqMap can display your existing MapInfo tables or can be used to design new and customise existing ones. BosqMap does not modify MapInfo files (other than through the normal save procedure) so can be used in conjunction with other MapInfo applications.
BosqMap software is a .mbx program for MapInfo which enables the user to add, view and edit data held in MapInfo tables, simply and easily link tables to other tables and link multiple photos and other files to map-objects and all this through one simple dialog box or form.

BosqMap does not modify MapInfo files (other than through the normal save procedure) so can be used in conjunction with other MapInfo applications.
How it works:
- BosqMap works by placing a file (extension .gjs) in the same directory as the MapInfo .tab file. BosqMap then reads this file and uses the information it contains to display the data in the table. Linked Tables, Photographs and Documents are all referenced through this file.
- BosqMap uses a .mbx file compiled in MapBasic to display the data and does not rely on external applications.
- Each column in a table can be displayed as either editable text, a dropdown menu or a tick box and is displayed in the data display dialog box. User can add and view photos and documents, and link tables to each other. This is all accessible through the same dialog box. There is no limit to the number of BosqMap tables that can be open; each with their own dynamic data display dialog.
- BosqMap is an evaluable extra for all MapInfo users and discounts are available for educational and charitable institutions, and bulk orders.
- View, enter (or digitise) and edit data using a form (dialog box)
- Associate multiple photographs and documents with objects
- Link tables to each other
- Designing and editing tables: This section at first glance may seem complex, but within a very short period of time existing tables can be imported and new ones designed. Existing MapInfo tables can be registered as BosqMap tables, new tables can be designed and altered by selecting ‘Create or adjust BosqMap Table’ in the MapInfo file menu: File – Create or adjust BosqMap Table
- Convertying/ registering MapInfo tables: When a MapInfo table is registered as a BosqMap table it is not modified, instead a separate .gjs file is produced which gives BosqMap the instructions as to how to display the data, you can therefore easily and safely migrate your tables to BosqMap. Press the ‘Convert to (register as) BosqMap Table’ button
- Tables with a maximum of 32 columns can be imported into BosqMap (if you have larger tables you may wish to consider splitting them into smaller tables with less columns and linking them using the linked table function). All columns are initially set as Edit Text and the BosqMap display order follows that of the MapInfo table (in other words column 1 is the first column displayed in BosqMap data display dialog and column 32 is the last). Tables can be also de-registered from this dialog box
- Creating new BosqMap tables: When creating new BosqMap tables (File – Create or adjust BosqMap Table) there are two options:
Blank table: A table with 1 column – ID is created. The user is prompted to save the file which is then created and the BosqMap Alter Table Structure Dialog for the table is populated.
From existing .gjs file: If an existing .gjs file is used the user is prompted to select the exiting file and save the table and the BosqMap Alter Table Structure Dialog is populated.
- Saving tables and queries
- Saving tables: Tables are saved automatically every time the user presses ‘Save’ on a data display dialog. However if the user uses the standard MapInfo tools to digitise data (for example re-shaping a polygon) they will need to save as normal.
- Saving copies of tables and queries: To save copies of BosqMap or queries from BosqMap tables use the Menu item: BosqMap – Save copy of BosqMap Table. This will ensure that a copy of the .gjs files is saved with the .tab file and that the file can be opened.
- Toolbar and menu settings: BosqMap can display a reduced set of toolbars and menus so that non-expert users cannot alter data except through the BosqMap data display dialog. In order to view the reduced set of toolbars select the ‘BosqMap’ menu and then ‘menus and toolbars’. BosqMap – Menus and Toolbars. Users can be restricted to using only the reduced set of toolbars and menus by setting a password. After using the BosqMap reduced toolbar it will be necessary to re-load any custom tools.
- Passwords: The password is set on each machine (and not defined per user). This helps to ensure that non-expert users cannot inadvertently alter data except by using the BosqMap and refined MapInfo tools. When set a password is required to:
- Create or adjust BosqMap tables
- Access the full MapInfo toolbars
