Spatially Aware announced today the prerelease of Map Suite Winforms Edition, a powerful component based development suite, leveraging Microsoft's .NET Framework, that allows .NET Developers to quickly and easily add mapping functionality to the applications. "In the past, only developers with a very strong background in Geographic Information Systems were able to develop mapping applications. Now that has changed." said David Rehagen, Senior Developer for the Map Suite product line. "We offer GIS and non-GIS developers all of the tools they need to develop first class spatial applications in a fraction of the time it would take with legacy components."
Rehagen mentioned a pricing model that is lucrative to large and small companies alike. "We do not charge any per seat licensing fees for desktop applications. Distribution of the application you build is royalty free. You are not usually going to find that with other products in this market."
All Map Suite products are built in .NET and do not use COM Interoperability or other proprietary applications or services. Free trial downloads are available at the Spatially Aware download site and include many sample applications to help get you started.
