About exporting imagery from an image service in MapInfo

The image data you receive as a client from an image service can be exported as a raster dataset and saved on your local system. You may need to save this data to use it in analysis applications. You cannot export the raw data used to create the service; you can only export the data you receive as a client—that is, the processed raster data. You can save this data into TIFF, JPEG 2000, and JPEG file formats.


Export Image Properties


Field Description
Set the extent to
  • Current View Extent—The current visible extent of the image service.
  • Default Extent of Image Service—The bounding extent of the image service.
  • Custom Extent—User-defined extents.
  • Selected Graphic's Extent—This option is displayed only if a graphic defining the area of extent is marked on the screen (map) (using graphics on the Drawing toolbar) and it is kept selected before bringing up the Export Image Properties dialog box. If you have too many graphics selected, the extent is a union of all graphics.
