June 17, 2008 -- Lawrence, KS – ThinkGeo is pleased to announce the release of Map Suite version 2.53.5. The new version boasts several additional features and a host of improvements and fixes that the company is certain will enhance the GIS development experience of all Map Suite users.
The most distinctive change in the latest version of ThinkGeo's Map Suite GIS controls for .NET is the addition of map rotation functionality. Among the many benefits this brings to developers is the ability to design GPS-like applications, where the map can rotate to indicate a direction of travel. "By adding support for map rotation, we have again raised the bar on what is possible with Map Suite," says Clint Batman, President and CEO of ThinkGeo.
Other improvements in Map Suite 2.53.5 include animated GIF support, two new projection classes, support for managed image loading, and a variety of new mode types, constructors, API bug fixes and enhancements.
Batman is also excited about the future of the Map Suite product line. "This release rounds out the functionality in the Map Suite 2.0 era, which is built on top of version 2.0 of the .NET Framework," he says. "In the coming weeks, look for exciting announcements about Map Suite 3.0 as we get set to release our next generation of mapping components."
