Parallel Manifold GIS saves you time and effort.

Manifold Release 9 · Manifold Viewer

Manifold Release 9 provides cutting edge access to the latest Manifold GIS technology in a series of community-driven, open beta builds. Built on the superfast Radian engine, Manifold Release 9 adds hundreds of GIS capabilities to create the fastest, easiest and most productive GIS ever. Nothing else comes close to the speed and power and spectacular fun of fully parallel GIS. Manifold Release 9 Cutting Edge builds already deliver far greater reliability than any other GIS.

Each new Cutting Edge Release 9 build adds yet more power and features, typically being issued once or twice a week. The Manifold Release 9 User Manual and API Documentation describe the most recent build published in the Cutting Edge section of the user forum and available for download from the Product Downloads page. The free, read-only Manifold Viewer product tracks Manifold Release 9 and uses the same documentation.

Radian Studio for Spatial Engineering

Radian Studio

Radian Studio is the massively parallel Radian spatial data engine packaged with an easy user interface. Radian Studio is a new spatial engineering environment that blends geospatial and traditional data capabilities within a single, all-inclusive product that leverages the power of parallel processing to make life easier for experts and non-experts alike. Radian can manipulate an almost unlimited range of data types in tables, vector data, raster data, drawings, maps and images. Integrate, prepare, transform, analyze, visualize, discover and slice and dice your data within Radian or in-place in your preferred storage.

As of December, 2017, Radian Studio has been deprecated in favor of Manifold System Release 9, which provides a far larger superset of Radian Studio capabilities, including all Radian Studio spatial data engineering capabilities plus hundreds more GIS-oriented and visualization capabilities. Radian Studio licenses will continue to be available to serve Radian Studio licensees; however, all Radian Studio licensees are encouraged to take advantage of special incentive offers to transition to Manifold System Release 9.

The Radian User Manual provides a snapshot of Radian Studio on 1 September 2017. For API documentation on Radian Engine technology click the Manifold Release 9 API documentation button above.
