Precisely Spectrum Spatial v2022.1 Released

Spectrum Spatial v2022.1 - was released on the 31st March and is now available.

v2022.1 of Spectrum Spatial

This release tackles the major security concerns following the Log4Shell vulnerability issue of last year, that affected most java based systems. The Spectrum Platform (which includes Spectrum Spatial server) and Spectrum Spatial Analyst will now require JDK 11 as a pre-requisite for deployment. JDK8 is no longer supported for deployment of the Platform.
It also comes with enhanced features and a number of bug fixes.

Here's a list of some of the most important improvements in Spectrum Spatial v2022.1:

  • Multi-Resolution Raster (MRR) table - volatility enhancements. The concept of volatility will now apply to TAB files which are using MRR as a source.
  • MRR precision and type enhancements.
  • Sub-admins to manage their own named connections via the Spatial Manager.
  • Support for SQL Server 2019 and Oracle 18c and 19c data sources.
  • Support has been added for PostGIS as a destination source when uploading data from SSA using the internal data upload service. SSA will now show connections for Post GIS in addition to SQL Server and file-based connections (which are used for uploading to TAB file as a destination).
  • Show data bind info using custom templates.
  • Support for Third Party WMTS services.
  • Spatial Analyst and the extensibility framework have been upgraded to Angular 11. The benefits are that load times when first browsing to the application will be noticeably improved.

The underlying components used by Analyst have been updated. The primary changes are:-

  • Openlayers is now on version 6.5 rather than 4.5.

  • PrimeNG is version 11.

  • The underlying library supporting extensibility actions and state management is now NGRX 11.

MapInfo Pro v2021.1 Released

MapInfo Pro v2021.1 - a minor upgrade to MapInfo Pro v2021 - was released on the 31st March and can be downloaded from here

v2021.1 of MapInfo Pro

This release comes with full support for all the localized languages that MapInfo Pro supports. And, it also comes with enhanced features and a number of bug fixes.

Here's a list of some of the most important improvements in MapInfo Pro v2021.1:

  • New Choose Projection dialog with favourite and most recent used projections and with Search support lets you reuse and find projections a lot easier
  • Support for time-enabled WMS layers allows you to use these in conjunction with Time Series. The time-enabled layers are marked with a time symbol in the Open WMS Table dialog
  • Visibility Expression support for Raster and Vector layers allows you to control when a layer should be visible.
  • Can be used in combination with Time Series to turn on and off layers for specific time intervals.
  • You can now time-enable layers for the Time Series analysis in more ways. You can use existing columns, use a MapBasic expression, use the Layer Visibility Expression, and you can use a time-enabled WMS layer.
  • New projections for Germany and the Philippines.
  • Refresh Query support in these dialogs: SQL Select, Select by Location and Select by Attribute let you refresh an already open query without removing it from windows.
  • WFS Tab files in a shared location. WFS data files can now be stored in a temporary location allowing you to share the WFS tab files across multiple users
  • Offline MapInfo Pro Viewer lets you use MapInfo Pro Viewer without constant internet access.

And don't want to forget that MapBasic v2021.1 has also been released. Find it here

The place to go to find out more - complete with images and further explanation - is the MapInfo Pro online Community. Peter Moller does a great job here

Want to try this out for yourself?

The Evaluation Version link below is an evaluation copy with 30 days free. If you decide to purchase a license, we shall provide you with a serial number and access code for the full version at the end of the trial period or any time prior.
https://support.precisely.com/product-downloads/item/mapinfo-pro-v2021-evaluation-version/

MapInfo Viewer:

A free read-only version of MapInfo is available in v2021. This is part of the normal MapInfo installation where you can choose to install the viewer. This is available in the Trial version also.

NEW Subsciption Licensing

This is great news for new customers who would have been looking to purchase MapInfo Pro for £1,660 + VAT - as the new pricing is only £590 + VAT per annum.

What is more, is that it includes MapInfo Pro Advanced, any new software releases and technical support for the one annual fee!

If you have any questions or need a quotation, then please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Precisely announces Subscription Licensing for MapInfo Pro

Like many software vendors, Precisely has moved to Subscription Pricing and Licensing for all new licences purchased from 1st July 2021.
This is great news for new customers who would have been looking to purchase MapInfo Pro for £1,660 + VAT - as the new pricing is only £590 + VAT per annum.
What is more, is that it includes MapInfo Pro Advanced, any new software releases and technical support for the one annual fee!

If you are on a current Maintenance And Technical Support (MATS) contract with an existing perpetual licence, then you can carry on with that model and also add more licences in the usual manner. There is an option to switch over to the Subscription model - and you will gain from having the Advanced version too. This means that you would lose the "perpetual" aspect of the MapInfo licence.

If you have dropped out of the annual MATS contract and want to upgrade to the latest version of Mapinfo Pro (maybe you are still on a 32-bit version), then you would go straight onto the Subscription Licence. This is also cheaper than the upgrade + MATS cost.

Note that there is also the option of a 3 year licence for an even lower annual fee plus there are further discounts for volume licences.

If you have any questions or need a quotation, then please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Precisely announces version 2019.3 of MapInfo Pro

Precisely strongly encourages customers to stay current by upgrading to the latest release for MapInfo Pro. This is a full install taking MapInfo over to the Precisely family of software products. You do not need a new Serial Number if you already have version 2019. The install routine will uninstall your old version before installing this new one.

Feature Additions in this Release

New Precisely Branding and API endpoints - You will notice a lot of Purple now! The API endpoints that power GeoMap base maps, Geocoding, and Drivetime services within MapInfo Pro have also moved over to Precisely servers. You may need to re-register for these services (using the same credentials). Registering also gives you the access to the Marketplace feature within MapInfo.

NOTE:You will need to update to this latest version of MapInfo Pro v.2019.3 to maintain access to these features.

New LiDAR tools

Surface Analysis - Provides limited triangulation capabilities to a standard MapInfo Pro user - more available in Advanced.

Tree Canopy Analysis - Enables three different methods for canopy cover analysis.

These features allow you to take in numerous LiDAR .las or .laz files and process them. The Surface and Tree Canopy analysis requires the raw LiDAR data, which contains additonal readings to just a height value. In our tests with the open data from the Scottish Remote Sensing Portal revealed that those laz files had already been sanitised.

Python Console window - Edit and execute Python code interactively from within MapInfo Pro using the Python console window.

Numerous Enhancements and Product Updates

CDR Group has a renewed place on G-Cloud 12, the UK Government's cloud procurement framework

We are very pleased to announce the renewed offering of Spectrum Spatial as a cloud based GIS application via the G-Cloud catalogue. Spectrum Spatial, from Precisely, is a powerful web mapping tool that can be accessed from any device in any location and has an intuitive interface that allows staff to jump straight into spatial data without any training. We already work with a number of public sector organisations and hope that being included in the governments procurement framework will give prospective customers the final vote of confidence they need to invest in CDR.

G-cloud offers public sector organisations the opportunity to purchase their cloud-based software and services from a single catalogue. Buying services through frameworks is faster and cheaper than entering into individual procurement contracts. Buyers and suppliers still need to sign a contract (or ‘call-off contract’) for each service bought through a framework. G-Cloud 12 is the twelfth iteration of the G-Cloud framework. G-Cloud is open to all public sector bodies including central government, local government, third sector organisations, NHS and other health providers and education.

What's new in MapInfo Pro v2019.1:

Python Language Support: Python 3.7.6 x64 is installed with MapInfo Pro in the installation directory in the Python37 folder. MapInfo Pro uses the PythonNet implementation to interact with the Python environment and allow interop between .NET and Python. Multiple modules (numpy, scipy, seaborn, pandas, matplotlib, osgeo, ptvsd, mi_py_debugger) are preinstalled and can be used out of the box. Installation of additional modules is supported as well. “Run Application” MapBasic statement now supports executing *.py files.

Improvements in Select By Location Dialog: now you can specify the name of the results table, have an option to display results in a new Browser window, add results to topmost Map window, add colour override to results added to the map, find results in a Map or Browser window and execute the query without changing current selection.

4K Monitor support: Improved dialog listbox scaling on 4K monitor.

Heat Maps: on the Heatmap dialog box, we have added the Select Column option to enable you to specify the column from the input table that will be used to weighting calculations on a column value.

Updates in the Raster Calculator tool: we have added more functions to the Calculator tool to support bitwise operations. These functions can be applied to unsigned integers.

Enhancements in the Raster Contour Dialog Box: we have added Match Colours to Input checkbox on the main panel of the Contour dialog box. This checkbox is used for colouring the contour lines/polygons according to the colour scheme of the input raster.

For trial users: The Evaluation Version link below is an evaluation copy with 30 days free. If you decide to purchase a license through our estore you can add your serial number and access code for the full version at the end of the trial period or any time prior.

MapInfo Training for moving over to the 64-bit interface

Windows 7 support ends in January 2020 and we have seen a dash to upgrade users to Windows 10 recently. So isn't it time to upgrade your MapInfo to version 17?

What is holding you back? Perhaps it is the new ribbon interface and the changes that have taken place since your 32-bit version was released?

If you're not on v17, then you're already missing out on

  • The new Welcome screen with direct access to the Knowledge Communities

  • The invaluable Quick Search feature to find your favourite commands

  • Themes in the Layer Control (and Layout).

  • Enhancements to the Raster capabilities

  • Layout Templates, Smart Text and Smart Guides

  • Free credits for online Geocoding and Drivetime Regions

  • New 64-bit FREE ProViewer

  • Access to online GeoMaps (OSM) in 3 varieties

  • MapInfo Pro Python add-in for developers

  • MapInfo Marketplace preview

There are tutorials and videos online to help you but perhaps you require a bit more help. CDR has put together a one day training course for existing users to go through the new features and help you to get the most out of this much improved software. It's not just a case of finding where your favourite tools and functions have moved to - the Layout especially has a much better and easier process for producing output.

One of CDR's team can come to you and work through the new ways or working. For further details about the Training course visit this page https://www.cdrgroup.co.uk/train_mi64info.htm

We would be more than happy to help you.

MapInfo Training News Spring 2019

2019 is sure to be a turbulent year - in February, there were days when we were defrosting the cars in the morning and sunbathing at lunch time! Although we can't help sort the weather out, we can help you have a bumper year using MapInfo. We run AGI accredited training courses at our CDR offices in the Peak District.

32bit and 64bit ribbons Image

MapInfo Pro version 17.0.2 released and MapInfo ProViewer is back in 64-bit!

MapInfo Pro version 17.0.2 released and MapInfo ProViewer is back in 64-bit!

MapInfo ProViewer has returned with the release of MapInfo Pro v17.0.2, giving non GIS savvy colleagues the ability to open and analyse MapInfo workspaces and tables. Viewer is a 'lite' version of MapInfo Pro - the ribbons and interface remain the same but advanced editing and querying tools have been greyed out. Users can still run basic queries, turn layers on and off and edit layouts before printing. This really is a fantastic add-on for MapInfo and best of all, Viewer is free to download for as many users as you like!

Pitney Bowes have also added GeoMap base maps to v17.0.2 as a free alternative to Bing base maps. These are based on OpenStreetMap data and appear next to the Bing base map buttons on the 'Open' dropdown box. (Please note that OSM is open source data and not as accurate as commercial base maps such as Ordnance Survey.)

Improvements have been made to the Print Layout pages including a new Distribute Horizontally button to evenly space layout items. You can find more information and discussion on the new Knowledge Communities website https://community.precisely.com/home

You can download MapInfo Pro v17.0.2 from the Pitney Bowes download page here or Check for Updates in the backstage area of MapInfo Pro. Your existing v17 serial number will continue to work.
