Does Mapinfo have a linear referencing tool as Arcgis

Products Affected: MapInfo Pro
This is not something that we support at this time. To support Linear Referencing you will need to store additional information for each node in a polyline. Typically it is done through having M values stored per each node. We have ability to read M-values stored in a shapefile (directly reading them) and through 'Open Universal Data".

This approach has two limitations:
1) It is read only
2)M-Values are only accessible  through MapBasic.

To see this added to MapInfo Pro, a feature request can be added to the Ideas Portal via the case management system here. Please be aware the Ideas Portal is only accessible to client currently under maintenance with Pitney Bowes.
