This release provides a major enhancement to the visualisation capabilities of MapLink Pro through the use of OpenGL and delivers the first release of MapLink Pro for Android.
“This is a very exciting release that pushes the envelope of visualisation performance and now extends these capabilities into the mobile and embedded hardware domains” says Matthew Wood, Product Manager, Envitia. “With the release of MapLink Pro for Android developers and systems integrators have the opportunity to put on-demand geospatial information in the hands of the mobile user.”
MapLink Pro 7.5 release also features a new high performance drawing surface which utilises OpenGL 2.0, OpenGL 3.0 and newer on both Windows and Linux. This release significantly boosts performance for graphic intensive applications. The use of OpenGL can also simplify software development and improve productivity.
MapLink Pro for Android delivers the Core MapLink Pro API for Android devices. Providing developers with the tools to build and deploy high performance visualisation and situational awareness applications on the Android operating system. Capabilities include:
• Multi-threaded map display for smooth, responsive applications.
• High performance visualisation of vector and raster maps and overlays along with live data feeds.
• Access to query the underlying geometry and attributes stored within maps.
• Support for domain specific APP6A / 2525B symbology.
