Madrid, Spain, May 8, 2006— After a successful Beta program, Genasys today announced the release of Version 9 of the GenaMap Product Suite. This powerful GIS development and distribution platform is celebrating more than 20 years providing flexible functionality and Unix and Linux support while Version 9 adds support for the Windows operating system.
In version 9, the new java renderer enables the enhanced display of maps and images providing intelligent text display and an extensive set of icons while the added capability for anti-aliasing generates cleaner, more attractive maps. Other features include read ability for DWG format files and the implementation of the JDBC standard for database access offering streamlined performance and maintenance.
This release is the first to be launched under the Genasys brand following the merger with GenaWare in late 2004. “The rebranding of GenaMap marks a clear division between the old brand, GenaWare, and Genasys. Our focus on customer service and satisfaction marks quite a change from the previous management’s policies and client treatment. GenaMap clients can now expect the attentive and professional service that Genasys provides to all of its clients of software and professional services solutions.”
Though this release adds native Windows support, GenaMap is still the clear choice for public administration and SME clients who are looking for an affordable, high-performance Linux-based GIS system to help them improve productivity, facilitate decision-making processes, and simplify the maintenance of their geographic and georeferenced information. Manager of the GenaMap Development Team Alex Martinez observes, “A key benefit of operating natively on Linux and Unix systems is the easy access to scripting. We’ve had clients who’ve actually been able to carry out a task in just 30 minutes which took two days of coding and testing on another big-name GIS system. So the benefits are not just the obvious economic savings but also those inherent in the operating system itself.”
In 1994 Genasys was founded with the mission to develop innovative and intelligent geospatial solutions for the global telecommunications market. Delivering solutions that range from business-oriented data modeling to mobile location services, Genasys has kept pace with the new developments in the market while staying true to its core vision. Working from extensive experience in professional services and product development, the Genasys team is proud of the relationships it has built with its clients and of the challenges inherent in the goal of consistently exceeding expectations in every project they complete.
