SuperGIS, first impression

In our Western context SuperGIS has not reached a significant position, however in the East, speaking of countries like India, China, Taiwan, Singapore -to name a few- SuperGIS has interesting positioning. I have planned to test these tools during 2013 as I have done with Manifold GIS and gvSIG, comparing its functionality; but for now

New format of InfoGEO and InfoGNSS magazines

With great pleasure we see that has been launched a new format of the InfoGNSS and InfoGEO magazines, which traditionally have been obtained in pdf format for download. The new format is under the service that provides CALAMEO for online navigation’s magazine, very convenient for its searching and browsing capabilities. This is available from InfoGEO

Geomap and its link with Google Maps

Some time ago I did a review of the Geomap beta version, which among its best features has ability to synchronize data views not only with Google Maps, but with Bing Maps, Yahoo Maps and Open Street Maps. Unlike what other programs do, that only import a georeferenced capture, Geomap has support for loading tessellating

What Global Mapper 13 brings back

It was announced the Global Mapper new version, for both 32 and 64 bits. Although this is a program that is questioned for its GIS capabilities, its simplicity is which has become very popular, especially for handling three-dimensional models and the ability to import and export between different formats.

GIS Kit, finally something good for the iPad

Finally I see a really attractive application for iPad oriented to the capture of GIS data in field. The tool has potential for many things, and leaves in diapers other applications I’ve tried like GaiaGPS, GIS4Mobile, ArcGIS for iPad and GISRoam; the latter is powerful but unfriendly to work and more focused on the analysis

Bentley Map PowerView V8i, first impression

I have received a version of PowerView V8i Select Series 2 (version 8.11.07), the economic line in mapping area that Bentley hopes to exploit. At first there has been eliminated some of my doubts in the previous post when I showed the three lines of geospatial area for 2011. To begin with, rather than a

Manifold, topology and modular structure

I get a request for someone who studies Geomatics in the UTEM in Chile and a teacher has delegated him a task on Manifold, so I take to post about it. 1. Does Manifold support topology? Yes, for this we must activate the shared editing option “edit / shared edit” Thus, vector content that shares

Geomap Beta 3 looks promising

Geomap is a new development stage of what we knew as Tcmap already under an integrated concept into Tracsa Geobide company strategy. Like gvSIG, this initiative will take my interest because it’s born on Hispanic environment with a proprietary approach, but with prices that could be easily reach and under a phased model that looks

Mobile Mapper 10, first impression

After the acquisition of Ashtech by Trimble, Spectra has begun to promote Mobile Mapper products. The simplest of these is Mobile Mapper 10, which I want to take a look at this time. Mobile Mapper Pro, CE and CX versions ended up but there’s still in the market the last one. The popular Mobile Mapper
