PolynodeExtractor is a MapInfo tool for extracting the X and 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.
