Flexible labeling shows multiple fields
ClueTrust has announced an update to its Geographical Information System (GIS) software, Cartograpica, which will soon be offered alongside a mobile version for the iPhone. Cartographica 1.2 brings a flexible labeling system that can show multiple fields, even in different styles on one ore more lines. Support for Illustrator support has been improved, allowing users to add legends and layers for geospatial or textual data.
The latest version provides new formula fields capable of calculations using higher math and geoprocessing data. Live Maps now integrates with a variety of tile servers and WMS services, while overall speed has been improved on Snow Leopard.
Cartographica Mobile allows users to access geospatial data directly from an iPhone. Users can view and edit data, maintain task lists, and display multiple layers of data. The app supports user-level permissions to prevent unauthorized access.
Cartographica 1.2 will be available in May for $495. The iPhone app should be available around the same time, although pricing has yet to be announced.
