(OGC) GML, WMS, WFS and WCS, ESRI Shapefiles, Autodesk, MapInfo and more are all supported.
Powerful new form and dialog controls – MultiMap, Zoom, Legend, Geocoding and many more controls for easy and powerful drag-and-drop development.
Seamless web mapping – New DataRasterTiles classes let tile-based mapping services, like Google Maps and Yahoo Maps, work together with bounding-box based services like OGC.
Symbology engine for powerful, meaningful maps – New GDI+ based Symbology Engine enables customizable, extendible feature symbology and rendering classes.
Tools for working online, or offline - Serialized, transportable geospatial session files™ (GSFs) are integrated into CarbonTools PRO, allowing you to work offline with all types of location content.
