"Here we had four researchers unable [in a week] to even budge a project along in ArcGIS or QGIS. I met with them for about a half hour, we drew out the problem on the whiteboard, and I walked through the steps with them with Manifold 8. About an hour later we had the project completed for the one data set.

That evening I wrote probably no more than 40 lines of VBScript so that they could just run the whole process on the other data sets. The script process took around five minutes to complete for each data set. Imagine that, four people and a week with no results. In comes Manifold and it's done that evening. ... The people called me a god after that :-)" - Manifold User

$145 includes full development capability!

Every Manifold license includes full development capabilities, including outstanding Forms programming for fast and easy applications development.

"Ring analysis, Morans Analysis, Huff Model of Retail Gravitation, Distance Matrices, Threshold Analysis, Spider Diagrams, etc. It took me about 3 hours to complete while I ate a turkey leg and watched the Thursday night game. That was it - 3 hours. What would it cost to do this in ArcGIS, or MapInfo? This Form creation stuff in Manifold 8 is like nothing else out there." - Manifold user [Click on the image above to see the user created video.]

Spatial Overlay

Superior Analytics


Manifold's modern technology delivers the most sophisticated spatial analytics in GIS. Legacy GIS packages have legacy limitations, such as separate layers for polygons, lines and points or tedious preparation to assure no overlaps for polygon-on-polygon overlays. Manifold provides a rich selection of spatial engineering tools that automatically handle any topology, no matter how strange, and simultaneously work with mixed polygons, lines and points with automatic blending of mixed database values and mixed projections as well. No other GIS at any price can handle such difficult topological situations automatically.

The Surface Tools option built into Universal Edition automatically computes watersheds. The image shows three watershed areas that are upstream of the three indicated points. Enjoy point and click analytic power with Manifold.

"Manifold SQL is very fast. I have a Table with 36,961 records. My Query was simple, extract 4 digits for the year from a string making up YYYYMMDD and paste the YYYY into a new column. The Query finished it's work in a second or two, so fast, I had to check that it ran at all."- Manifold user
