Welcome to the ThinkGeo Community!

The ThinkGeo Developer Community is your hub for support, ideas, and tips for all things Map Suite. There are just a few simple rules and guidelines we ask you to follow:

  • Your first post in the discussion forums will be held for moderator approval. Once your message has been approved, you will be able to make future posts without moderation.

  • Please search before creating a new topic, as it is very possible someone may have already asked the question.

  • Make sure to be descriptive in your topic, give it a good title and include any relevant information such as source code, screenshots, etc. This will help expedite response time.

  • If your question is product specific, please make sure to post under that product. That helps us keep things organized.

  • If you want to ask a specific question, you can flag your topic to make it easier for the admin or moderator to see that you need help.

  • If you’re looking for documentation and other reference information on how to use Map Suite, please browse our online Support Center.

  • Let’s keep it friendly! Absolutely no profanity or personal attacks will be tolerated.

  • Please no spamming; we don’t like SPAM.

  • Please share your questions, ideas, comments, feedback - we want it all!
