InterMAPhics 8 geospatial SDK will provide new features and improved performance
The latest release of InterMAPhics 8 offers a number of new features and capabilities. The new Mission Preparation Tool abstracts all mapping, imagery and elevation products into a single intuitive, easy to use tool which makes the creation of map, video and image datasets a snap. This new capability allows non-GIS staff to manage and load all GIS-related data with no effort in a fraction of the time. Datasets and style sheets can be imported or exported to be shared amongst all InterMAPhics developers through the free online repository.
In addition InterMAPhics 8 includes enhancements to style sheet usage, a simplified map loading API, extended 3D support and an extension to MIL-STD-2525 symbology. InterMAPhics 8 simplifies map handling in the application while at the same time providing greater control over the look and behavior of the maps.
“This release represents a significant step forward for InterMAPhics,” said Robert Aube, Vice President Engineering and Operations. “We continue to enhance our software solutions to provide the features and capabilities that C4ISR application developers require. The Mission Preparation Tool will significantly reduce the time and effort required to manage maps, imagery and other data required by these applications as well as enabling sharing across multiple developments.”
InterMAPhics, Kongsberg Gallium’s world leading mission visualization product, has been fielded in some of the most demanding applications in the world including AEGIS, Global Hawk, THAAD, NATO AWACS, and the Joint Battle Command-Platform among others.
