Manifold is an economical alternative to GIS

2014 - Brief predictions of the Geo context

It is time to close this page, and as happens in the custom of those who closed annual cycles, I loose some lines of what we could expect in 2014. And then we will talk more but just today, which is the last year: Unlike other sciences, in ours the tendencies are defined by the circle ...

Manifold GIS, something else with layouts

Some time ago I spoke in an article how presentations for printing are created using Manifold GIS. At that time we did a pretty basic layout, in this case I want to show a more complex one. This is the example of a map of agrological productivity; as the main map is the current use from an image ...

Deciding by MapServer

Taking advantage of a recent conversation with a Cadastral institution that was looking for what to publish their maps, here I summarize the most important thing to return the rescues of the topic to the community. Maybe at the time it will help someone who wants to make a decision or ask for geofumed help. Why MapServer The scenario was someone, who had ...

Profiles from my ArcGIS course

I used to tell you that I was going to develop a training in the use of ArcGIS 9.3, with a huge average modality because of the distance, my little time and the occupations of the students. Now I leave some conclusions: On the methodology: I wish everything were so simple. If it were to give a training, teach with an example brought ...

CAD, GIS, or both?

... selling the capabilities of what free software does is more difficult than convincing an official to commit a punishable offense (piracy) so it does not make expensive software. Recently Bentley has launched a campaign to promote Bentley Map, using as an argument, that it is not necessary to be thinking separately if both ...

Geophysics: 2010 Predictions: GIS Software

A couple of days ago, in the heat of a stick coffee made by my mother-in-law, we made some hallucinations about the trends set for 2010 in the Internet area. In the case of the geospatial medium, the situation is more static (not to mention boring), a lot of this is already said in the medium term ...

Level contours with Manifold GIS

Proving what Manifold GIS does with digital models, I find that the toy does more than what we have seen so far for simple spatial management. I'm going to use the model that we created in the street exercise with Civil 3D as an example. Import a digital model In this Manifold is a powerful donkey, ...

Comparison of GIS software for surveying

Who would not want to have a table that compares different types of GIS software with features for surveying in order to make a decision on the purchase. As such thing exists in Point of Beginning, including popularized manufacturers such as AutoDesk, ESRI, Mapinfo, Intergraph, as well as equipment manufacturers such as Topcom, Leica and ...

How much software is worth in this blog?

For more than two years I have been writing about crazy topics about technologies, generally about software and its applications. Today I want to take the opportunity to analyze what it means to talk about software, with the hope of forming an opinion, highlighting virtues and how they respond to economic income and words generating traffic in ...

Topological cleaning

The action of the GIS tools is called in this way to eliminate vector inconsistencies to the norms commonly accepted in spatial topology. Each tool has implemented them in its own way, let's see the case of Bentley Map and Manifold GIS. Microstation Geographics Microstation includes two tools for the same, one activated by ...

Who moved my cheese?

I really like Geoinformatics, apart from being a magazine with great taste of layout, the contents are very good in geospatial matters. Today the April version has been announced, from where I have taken some texts highlighted in red to motivate them to the succulent reading. In previous versions I made a review, today I ...
