[Finnish Distributor to Use MapInfo Technology to Develop location based WAP services.]

Troy, New York -- "MapInfo Corporation (Nasdaq:MAPS) today announced it acquired a minority equity interest in its distributor in Finland, Karttakeskus Oy, a mapping technology and solutions company. The investment gives MapInfo access to Karttakeskus' market-leading expertise in location-based WAP mobile applications, including its new Address Finder service based on MapInfo technology and developed with Nokia and Telia. With this investment, MapInfo will accelerate its own application of WAP technology.

"This investment in our long-standing distributor in this important Nordic market expands MapInfo's technology offerings to include location-based services for wireless handheld devices."
