Innovative GIS-Software GeoMap

(06/09/2012) GAF GeoMap is a GIS desktop application for visualization, analysis and acquisition of raster and vector data as well as map generation and 3D visualization.

The user-friendly software is easy to use – also for non GIS-specialists. Further predefined functionality for more experienced users can be switched on in addition.

GeoMap is developed OGC-conform – also with respect to INSPIRE guidelines – and in compliance with certified ISO 9001:2008 procedures and common standards. The Software is programmed in Visual C# under the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0. It is based on disposable openSource components (GDAL) and own developed class libraries. Through the use of the Microsoft DirectX library a high performance visualization of data in 2D and 3D is achieved.
