MFworks v.2.6 for Macintosh

ThinkSpace is proud to announce the release of MFworks 2.6 for the Macintosh. This enhanced version of MFworks 2.6 extends the functionality and ease of use of MFworks 2.6 by adding new engine functions and a series of new Operations.

Following on the success of MFworks 2.5 for the MacOS, version 2.6 includes all the v.2.5 options and incorporates new Operations and functions.

This new release improves the engine performance of MFworks 2.6 by reducing it's processor demands and RAM requirements. It also offers an improved memory handling ability which will provide superior performance for all users.

The new Operations also play a significant role in this release. By adding a series of Operations known as The Incremental Series, MFworks 2.6 can offer more precise and flexible methods of spatial processing which are unsurpassed by any grid or raster package on the market today. The Incremental Series of Operations also help round out the few remaining MapAlgebra functions which MFworks 2.6 previously did not support. Also new in v.2.6 is the Classify Operation. This has now been certified and fully documented. This module is a supervised maximum likelihood classifier which supports multiple image data bands. The last new Operation is the Warp Operation. This module is a rubbersheeting option that was previously only available in the v.2.5 release.

New automated functions also play a role in the v.2.6 release for the MacOS. The Auto Align option will help make processing multiple map, or maps from differing sources, much quicker and easier. This fully scriptable function allows the user to automatically set the origin point of a given map to fit properly into their active workspace. The Resolution Calculator saves time and effort by automatically calculating cellular resolution based on map geometries.

The geometry editor in MFworks 2.6 has also had a few changes. Most notable is the new ability for the user to set the projection and datum upon geometry import and export. This is very useful when sharing data between MFworks 2.6 and other GIS packages that require particular geometry naming conventions.

MFworks 2.6 for the Macintosh
New Features

The New Operations:

Classify uses multiple image maps and a user defined 'training' map to perform maximum likelihood classifications. This helps you extract areas with common features from satellite or aerial photos.
Incremental Linkage
The basis of advanced network analysis. Easily identifies and classifies end nodes, intersections, forks, and other linear features.
Incremental Length
Provides highly accurate measurement of linear features taking the underlying surface and grid bevelling into account.
Incremental Partition
Provides a description of a zone's boundary characteristics.
Incremental Area
Provides highly accurate measurement of a zone's area taking the underlying surface and grid bevelling into account.
Incremental Frontage
Provides highly accurate measurement of a zone's perimeter taking the underlying surface and grid bevelling into account.
Reprojects a map layer based on the geometry of a second target map.

The Automated Functions:

Auto Align
Sets the origin point of the map to fit with the target geometry.
Auto Resolution
Sets the cell resolution to fit with the target geometry.
