Technology update for Q1 of 2017



WMTS Rest Support - One of the major fixes and changes has to do with the WMTS service is published by ERDAS APOLLO. With the release of ERDAS APOLLO 2016.1 WMTS RESTful services were introduced. However, some products had deficiencies when it came to reading and displaying the advertised output formats supported with WMS /

WMTS services and applying them within their applications. These problems have been solved in the new patch.

More information on all the additions and bug-fixes can be found in the added *.txt files in the download package.

GeoMedia Desktop 2016 SP1

Compatibility with the new Spatial Modeler of ERDAS IMAGINE 2016.1

Run Spatial Model command - This new command integrates spatial models into GeoMedia. It allows the user to select a model (.gmdx file) created through the Spatial Model Editor utility; fill in any parameters in the model dynamically, especially features input to the model from the GeoWorkspace; and then see the various results from the model added to the map within the GeoWorkspace.

Enhancements on Feature Caching - An optional log file may be created, and if present, the feature caching system will provide diagnostic information about whether and how caches are being used at runtime. Furthermore, the structure of the feature caching has been reorganized, for a faster performance.

Smart M.App Enterprise SP3

BI Wizard presents Multiple Data Stages to power your M.Apps - Previously the BI Map Panel could hold just one geo-visualization and it was always a single choropleth. Now with Data Stages you can have multiple geo-visualizations - for example polygons representing buildings (first Data Stage) and polylines representing streets (second Data Stage), and more!

BI Wizard supports point cluster maps - It was not always easy to visualize and interpret phenomena if multiple features appeared close to each other on the map. With this release, Point Map geo-visualizations help you solve that problem. With point maps, the geometries of all features are converted to points (based on center-of-mass values), and these points are grouped into clusters according to their geographical proximity. The individual points with their settings such as tooltips and labels are actually rendered only when it is meaningful.

Using M.App Chest just got easier - Now you can move data to different folders in M.App Chest just by using cut and paste.
