ThinkGeo Issues Final Releases of Map Suite Desktop, Silverlight and Routing; Updates Entire Map Suite Line

November 17, 2009

Lawrence, KS — ThinkGeo today released final versions of three of its professional GIS software products: Map Suite Desktop Edition, Map Suite Silverlight Edition and the Map Suite Routing Extension. Coming at the conclusion of the public beta, the newly-minted final releases of these three products represent a major milestone in the evolution of Map Suite, and each include additional bug fixes and fine-tuning. Several new sample applications and API documentation will help quickly bring developers up to speed.

These new Map Suite products offer a variety of geospatial software tools for programmers who are developing applications for the Windows desktop, for deployment over the Web using Microsoft Silverlightâ„¢ technologies, or who want to add point-to-point routing and driving directions to their map-enabled projects.

ThinkGeo's dedicated developer community, members of which helped test the products during the beta campaign, contributed in large part to the performance and stability of the final releases. New developers of all stripes who have been waiting to try the accessible .NET experience that Map Suite offers can now download free evaluations of all of these new products from ThinkGeo's website at

In addition, Map Suite Geocoder — ThinkGeo's professional geocoding developer component for .NET — has entered Release Candidate phase and is now available for immediate download. Changes in the Release Candidate are minor and have been made to assure stability before proceeding to a final release later this quarter.

ThinkGeo has also refreshed each of the other products in its Map Suite GIS software line, including Map Suite Web Edition and Services Edition, to provide additional bug fixes and improvements.
