Digital Data Technologies (DDTI) and GeoMicro announced the availability of AccuGlobe 2004 for free download at www.ddti.net/accuglobe.asp.
AccuGlobe 2004 was developed by DDTI, a business partner of GeoMicro. The product is built on GeoMicro’s AltaMap components.
AccuGlobe 2004 contains many GIS features such as feature editing, charts, smart labeling, web updates and creating project files. The primary purpose of AccuGlobe is to provide a mapping platform for organizations or people that have previously been unable to use GIS software because of the expensive license fees.
As climed by AccuGlobe, there are two key features that differentiate it from others:
1)The AccuGlobe 2004 software is a GIS, not a viewer, and can be freely downloaded and distributed to end users, and
2)AccuGlobe is also a development platform that can be customized and developers can create Plug-Ins and Extensions. The AccuGlobe SDK will be released in early Dec.
The AccuGlobe newsgroup has been launched by GeoMicro and can be found at .
AccuGlobe users and developers can ask questions about the product, share knowledge, exchange ideas, and promote Plug-Ins and Extensions they have.
