This enhanced version of MFworks extends the functionality and ease of use of MFworks by adding new engine functions and a series of new Operations.
This new release improves the engine performance of MFworks 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 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 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 was previously available only as an independent (optional) purchase. It is being included in the 2.6 release.
New automated functions also play a role in the v.2.6 release for Windows. 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 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 and other GIS packages that require particular geometry naming conventions.
Lastly, MFworks 2.6 for Windows offers a special version for developers. ThinkSpace has incorporated a Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE) link into the the MFworks engine. This allows a developer to create a custom front end for their project and use the proven power of MFworks spatial processing to provide the solution set. Consultants and educators may now use their preferred programming language (VB, C, C++, JAVA, etc.) to create custom solutions for their users.
MFworks 2.6 for Windows is now available.
