[postgis-users] Mapinfo

If you want to see spatial data from PostGIS in MapInfo 'directly' from
PostGIS, the only way to do this is to use FME. As stated earlier, it is
read only though. 

If you just want to use attribute data then you can access that using a
DBMS connection, but I am guessing you want the spatial data.

One other way which I have heard suggested is to use WMS or WFS to get
your data into MapInfo from PostGIS.

More and more GIS packages are supporting PostGIS so hopefully it will
just be a matter of time before MapInfo adds support.

Are Mapinfo and PostGIS compatible?   I've seen a few messages on
that sorta imply they work together.  Maybe.  But there is no support 
mentioned on the MapInfo website.
