Experience honest quality - Manifold is totally bulletproof. See the YouTube Video: Manifold does in 8 seconds what takes others 8 hours!

"Merging is fantastically fast in M9. I merged some lidar tiles a while back in a project which already contained nearly half a TB of lidar data. The 30000x22000 surface was merged and written to a new component in the project in an eye watering 3.5 seconds." - Forum post

"Oblique Mercator in Manifold 9 is astonishingly fast. I have an RGBA image 14401 x 18001 pixels in New Zealand Transverse Mercator (north up) which I am reprojecting on the fly to a custom Oblique Mercator projection (locally centred, east up) in a map. Display is instantaneous. Zooming and panning feel just as fast in the map, with quite heavy reprojection, as when viewing the image in its own window in its native projection. I don't know how this is even possible! Amazing stuff." - Forum post

Point and Click

Easy Wizardry - Over 270 automatic templates deliver data engineering genius for spatial and non-spatial data in tables, imagery, vector geometry and more.

Spatial SQL

Infinite Power - By far the world's most sophisticated and powerful Spatial SQL, so breathtakingly strong that even with non-spatial data it exceeds older SQL engines.

Easy Scripting

Have it All - Manifold includes V8 JavaScript plus integrated scripting in IronPython, IronRuby, C#, JScript, JScript.NET, VB.Net, VBScript and F#. No need to buy extras.

Community Driven

Manifold users enjoy a direct connection to Manifold's full-time, professional team of developers, the most advanced parallel spatial engineering development team in GIS. Every week or two, Manifold's Cutting Edge series of open beta builds respond to community priorities by delivering hundreds of new features and other improvements per month, often delivered within days of request. Bugs are eliminated immediately, never lasting longer than a few days. No other GIS evolves at that speed, no other GIS delivers such high quality, and no other GIS engineering organization implements community priorities as fast as Manifold.

"Beauty, putting my kids through college with this stuff, thank you." - Forum post on new feature added at user request.

Join the Community: Take advantage of special introductory pricing to buy Release 9 today. Release 9 has already far surpassed any other GIS or spatial data engineering tool in power, performance and total reliability. Use 9 with confidence today even, as Cutting Edge builds and Release 9 updates add hundreds more features per month, now and in the future.

"To be honest I love using M9 even for non-spatial databases." - Forum post on a pivot using multidimensional cubes with 130 million records.

"Wow! It is really as fast as advertised." - Forum post

Manifold Includes Everything

No need to learn multiple packages - Manifold does it all.

Limitless Data

Manifold knows more data sources than any other GIS or spatial data tool. Manifold knows all Enterprise DBMS vendors, all raster and vector formats and all OGC and web servers. Manifold knows all projections worldwide. Instantly pop open 100GB images. Transform any raster. Edit millions of vectors, including curvilinear geometry. Vast capacity, stunning speed and godlike power. Nothing else comes close at any price.

Infinite Spatial DBMS

Running point-and-click or SQL-centric, Manifold runs faster than anything else for spatial work, automatically executing fully-parallel Spatial SQL standalone within Manifold's parallel DBMS engine, or dispatched to your favorite DBMS, or in a mixture of both - all within the same query. Crunch big data using massively-parallel GPU within Manifold, or use Manifold as the ultimate client to enhance your favorite DBMS. Guaranteed to play well with all.

Honest Quality

Manifold is almost impossible to crash. Release 9 is built on the phenomenally bulletproof Radian spatial engineering engine, proven against the most complex tasks by users worldwide. Feed it massively complex SQL and Manifold executes with blistering speed and total accuracy. Every time. Manifold always runs no matter how complex your task, no matter how big your data and no matter how many cores go to work for you at lightning speed. Worried a big job will crash your GIS? Don't settle for software that crashes twice a week. Insist on honest quality. Get Manifold. Together with incredible speed and power, Manifold delivers rock-solid reliability.

"As a long time Manifold user, I'm simply awestruck by the performance gains. My colleagues are mostly ESRI users, but a few simple demos of intersecting large spatial datasets have won admiration from all." - Forum post

Easy to Play

Effortless power, endless capabilities and everything built into a single, unified package makes Manifold easy to play. Read, write or link to a seeming infinity of formats, so you can always get the data you want. No limits to data types and no limits to SQL. Connect to any DBMS, anytime, anywhere. Use the SQL you already know and Manifold parallelizes it for you. Automatically. Superfast and rich dialogs preview changes on the fly so you are never surprised. No need to buy anything else, to learn yet another server, to decode yet another quirky package or to spend endless hours playing software integrator. Do what you want right now. Just launch Manifold and make great things happen. Everything just works. Always.

See the User Video showing how Manifold can not only connect to ESRI gdb file geodatabases but slice and dice layers using Manifold SQL as well.

The Power of GPU

Manifold can use a $50 GPU plug-in card to speed up many spatial functions by 50 to 100 times. A $150 GPU card provides a thousand cores to crush big jobs. Use the same SQL you already know: Manifold automatically creates and launches massively parallel GPU code. No manual coding required. Do in seconds what once took hours. Effortlessly. Only Manifold can do that. No other GIS or spatial SQL tool runs GPU.

What Users Say Manifold is by far the fastest

Users report Release 9's parallel technology is the fastest GIS technology ever. Manifold products using Manifold's Radian engine save you time, labor and money by running faster than anything else. Search the Forum to see how well-known users report breakthrough performance gains, like this post:

"I have recently tinkering with lidar point cloud storage in Manifold Future and from what I have seen so far want to congratulate Manifold engineering on the incredible achievement that is the Radian Map format.

Out of idle curiosity, I have imported ever larger lidar pointclouds into MAP storage with a view to assessing whether Radian technology offers a potential solution to our ongoing problem we have with lidar storage, discovery and analysis.

Encouraged by my findings, I now have our organization's entire point cloud dataset and all las attribution stored as a single table containing some 1.72 billion points. Once imported, I have been absolutely astonished by the performance opening the map file which as shown in the screen grab below is ~0.4 of a second! Considering that following this blink of an eye, all of the data is available in a parallel data structure and ready to go with Radian's parallel analytics, this represents a huge achievement and opens up a host of possibilities.

How many records is 1.72 billion? I had no real comprehension, but at the height an individual record shows in attached the screen grab, if I were to scroll through the entire table, I'd be at it a while as it would be 6820 kilometers long! ... Sorry, I meant 8620km long even more astonishing."

8620 kilometers is bigger than the radius of the Earth. Manifold's Radian technology is so fast it can open and display a table that big in less than half a second, on a desktop computer. Amazing!
