Lawrence, USA, 02 July 2007: ThinkGeo LLC announced the release of Render USA, a .NET GIS plug-in for ThinkGeo’s Map Suite product line that automates the process of building maps of the United States. Designed with the non-GIS developer in mind, Render USA gives .NET developers the ability to build full-featured, detailed maps of the United States in just 3 steps.
1. Open a project with either a Map Suite Desktop or Map Suite Web map on it.
2. Add the RenderUSA class to your project.
3. Enter a few lines of code in the page load and BeforeLayersDraw event, then hit the play button.
Render USA gives developers the flexibility to quickly develop mapping applications of the United States for both the web or desktop environment.
It provides full coverage of the United States and uses the TIGER 2006 Second Edition data in the industry standard ShapeFile (.shp) format. Render USA is available in both the C# and VB.NET languages and a highly optimized 20GB dataset of the United States in ShapeFile format.
