SPSS Maps is a crippled version of MapInfo. As a starter it is not a bad deal. I found that the MapInfo documentation works fine for the SPSS Maps.

The output is fine.

The learning curve is quite steep....artificially so, in my opinion. If it were up to me to do over again, I would get the professional version of MapInfo and add to the learning curve time the output functions in SPSS to fit MapInfo.

Good Luck
