SiteMapper is a tool to batch export any number of maps (1000s if you wish) based on an input index ("site") table.
SiteMapper uses a mapper or layout window as a template for each map and then clones that window and zooms or pans the map to each site in the index table.
The index sites can be points, polygons or lines. Each map can be exported to a PNG, JPG or PDF.
If you are using a Layout as your template, the tool can update the Layout Title with a column value for each site.
Examples where you might use this. You need 100s of PDF maps, one for each suburb area. Or you need to create 100s of maps, one for each school point in a district.
PDF help document included with further details.
The issue of missing labels in the output will be resolved in the upcoming MapInfo Pro 17.0.3 (released early June 2019)
2018, Sept: v1.2: A few issues when creating maps from map windows have been fixed in this version
2019, May: v1.6: A new improved version of the SiteMapper tool. New clearer configuration dialog. Style and Labels can be copied from existing site layer and more

A clever little tool that can help you generate multiple outputs from a input table and a map or layout window. Thanks for sharing, Kalu!
