January 26, 2009 -- Lawrence, KS—ThinkGeo has just released the final versions of its Map Suite Web Edition 3.1, Map Suite Services Edition 3.1 and Map Suite World Map Kit extension products. Formerly in beta testing, these three GIS software products will make mapping applications developed on Microsoft's .NET platform even easier, faster and more powerful.
The final edition of Map Suite Web Edition 3.1 empowers developers of Web-based .NET mapping applications with faster and simpler coding, broad support for data and image formats, and a host of powerful rendering styles, spatial querying and geometric manipulation features. Services Edition 3.1 lets developers create their own Windows services, Web services and console applications in .NET, all of which leverage the power of GIS to deliver relevant spatial data in a high-performance package. Last but not least, the World Map Kit can be added to either Web Edition or Services Edition as a high-performance extension, and offers a complete set of map data covering the entire world, along with a pre-built look and feel that can be integrated with just a few additional lines of code.
Each product's final release includes numerous bug fixes and feature enhancements that were identified not only by Map Suite's development team, but also through feedback from the large community of Map Suite users. "The public beta release was extremely beneficial to us in our development process," says David Rehagen, Chief Architect of the Map Suite development team. "We received a lot of great feedback from our customers, and that helped us shape and polish Map Suite into an even better set of .NET GIS tools. We think our customers will be very pleased with the refinements in the final release."
