User Groups

ALGMUG (Australian Local Government MapInfo Users Group)
The Australian Local Government MapInfo User Group (ALGMUG) is a e-mail forum established in 2006 as a means for Council GIS staff to communicate with their peers in Local Government. The forum allows users to pose questions, both technical and non technical, to others doing essentially the same kinds of work. Although primarily focused on day to day MapInfo/Exponare/GIS issues and discussion points, the forum has also played an important role in the progression of future product developments.

MUGNZ (MapInfo Users Group New Zealand)
The New Zealand MapInfo Users Group (MUGNZ) has been supporting users since 1996, as with the Australian user group they aim to create a portal through which like minded users of Pitney Bowes Software location intelligence applications can discuss, communicate and express information with their peers.
