PolynodeExtractor is a MapInfo tool for extracting the X & Y coordinates and an optional Z value from the node locations of any point, line, polyline, or region object in an open Mapinfo table. Results are output to a text file selected by the user, using any of a number of common file data delimiters. The coordinates can be in the table's native projection or in a user selected projection. For line, polyline and polygon objects, the user can thin the selected nodes by setting a minimum buffer distance.
The tool will NOT work with Query tables, Seamless tables, Raster Images, Read-Only tables, and tables opened via ODBC. [No BugFix history yet for this version].
Download and unzip both the .mbx and .str files (and any other provided files) into any directory. Within MapInfo use Tool Manager (under the Tools menu) to point to the mbx file as a new Tool.
