"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
"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.]
Manifold Commander runs from a command line, and allows running SQL queries within a Manifold project or scripts either within the Manifold project or in external files. It allows launching commands to automatically do work without having to manually launch Manifold and operate it interactively. Using Windows Task Scheduler you can launch tasks using Commander on a regular schedule, such as updating a CSV every night for serving to clients, updating databases, or converting files into different formats.
The limited Manifold Server configuration in Universal edition allows one Server instance per machine launched from a Command Prompt window with a limited number of connections. A universal license is a single desktop license that includes simultaneous interactive use of Manifold 9 along with a Server instance, allowing interactive use at the same time the machine is running as a server. Best buy.
An unlimited number of connections takes advantage of cost-efficient, many core CPUs that can provide very many threads on server machines at low cost. Single machine license that includes simultaneous interactive use of Manifold 9 along with a Server instances, allowing interactive use at the same time the machine is running as a server. Outstanding value for workgroups and organizations

No need to buy expensive extras or to struggle to integrate separate products. Manifold Release 8 scales from personal use on the desktop to enterprise use within the largest organizations deploying thousands of users simultaneously editing terabytes of data.
"I am not a coder. Manifold comes with pre-coded queries and transforms that make me look like a genius in the office and around the community. I routinely do stuff that I would never attempt with a less friendly program." - Manifold Release 8 user
Manifold Release 8 is a unified package and is not cobbled together from third party code: No need to study a jigsaw puzzle of quirky packages to do what you want. Developed, proven and supported by the same professional team, Manifold Release 8's exclusive focus on Windows with perfect incorporation of the latest in modern technology saves you time and money. Install one package and you have it all at your fingertips with no need to spend days playing software integrator to get around the limitations of amateur software or the high costs of legacy software that always wants to charge you a few thousand more for the feature you need.
Manifold Release 8'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 Release 8 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.
"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 Release 8 user
