The August 28 special presentation in the Technical Arena featured "Manifold System 4: High End GIS and Network Analysis for Very Low Cost." Dimitri Rotow, Marketing Manager for Manifold Ltd. introduced Manifold System, a new type of mapping software. Dimitri used slides to illustrate the progression of four generations of mapping software (listed below) and how Manifold is a fourth generation software system with a myriad of features:

  1. Software that uses computers to draw digital maps of a given area on demand.
  2. Software that combines map-drawing capability and data base capability to create a Geographic Information System (GIS).
  3. GIS software adds analytic capability, the ability to use the computer to "think through" complex relationships or mathematical tasks.
  4. GIS software designed from inception to integrate analysis, database, and map drawing; created within modern Windows technology using the latest user interfaces.
