MITAB - MapInfo .TAB and .MIF/.MID Read/Write Library

MITAB is an Open Source (i.e. Free!) C++ library to read and write MapInfo .TAB (binary) and .MIF/MID files. It is based on the OGR library which is an implementation of the Open GIS Consortium Simple Feature specification.

If what you need is not a library but a MapInfo conversion utility, then the "TAB2TAB" conversion program could possibly do what you want. A precompiled version of the TAB2TAB command-line conversion program for WIN32 is available. See downloads for more information.


Latest Version

The latest version of the library is version 1.2.3 from October 15, 2002


Special Thanks to:

  • Frank Warmerdam for his work on the projection conversion code and on the OGR architecture.
  • Stephane Villeneuve for implementing .MIF/.MID support.
  • To all those who have contributed test datasets, bug reports, and other useful pieces of information.
