  • Manifold

  • Manifold GIS is a combination of mapping, CAD, DBMS and image processing. The hallmark of GIS is the power of using a visual interface to view, grab, analyze, manipulate and transform data that would not be comprehensible in classic row and column DBMS text presentations. Although many people use Manifold to create brilliant and compelling maps for presentations, the unique power of Manifold comes from the visual computing it makes possible with databases ranging from personal data to the largest, most sophisticated, enterprise-class databases. At far less than the price of a limited mapping tool like Google Earth Pro, Manifold delivers far more capability. »
