Digital mapping and GIS software developer Cadcorp of U.K. has announced the latest version of the Cadcorp SIS – Spatial Information System software suite, Cadcorp SIS Version 6.2. This latest version of Cadcorp SIS introduces many new and enhanced features designed to enable organisations to realise efficiency gains from increased productivity, improved information sharing and customer self-service.
The ability to directly read almost 150 native GIS, CAD, graphic and database formats without translation enables organisations to maximise their investment in existing data by integrating disparate data types, including data from legacy systems. Wider support for Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) Web services extends interoperability and information exchange across the enterprise via certified OGC compliant interfaces. The ability to integrate Cadcorp SIS into the enterprise has been enhanced with direct support for the latest spatial database technology without the need to purchase additional middleware, together with improved database transaction and query support.
Cadcorp SIS now has numerous enhancements to the user interface and to map navigation. These include the ability to quickly find and retrieve OGC services via a Google OGC Web service search Wizard. The release also provides advanced GIS functionality such as viewshed and terrain analysis, integrated GPS support and advanced GIS data buffering, all at no additional cost. Finally, a new version of Cadcorp SIS OS MasterMap Manager minimises the investment required in database server technology and resources to manage OS MasterMap and is delivered with Cadcorp SIS Map Modeller at no extra cost. Cadcorp SIS Version 6.2 is scheduled to begin shipping early October.
