Manifold System 9.0.177 | 151.4 Mb
Manifold Release 9 is a new GIS that makes spatial work easier, faster, and way more effective for both experts and non-experts alike. Manifold unleashes your insights with superior quality, speed and bulletproof accuracy, all at a cost of ownership lower than even free software.
Curious how Manifold compares to Esri products? See the Faster than Esri collection of videos. Do in seconds what takes Spatial Analyst minutes or hours. See the Faster Esri Workflow page to learn how to add Manifold to your Esri stack.
FAST GIS IS FUN GIS
Super fast speed brings a new level to "ease of use" - GIS is way easier when everything happens fast, even with bigger data, and you don't have to wait around for many seconds or minutes for jerky web interfaces or slow desktop software to do what you want. Do in seconds what takes minutes or hours in other GIS packages. Life is too short for slow GIS!
Manifold provides hundreds of vector and raster geoprocessing tools that with a point and click run ten, fifty, or even one hundred times faster than Spatial Analyst or other Esri toolbox equivalents. Manifold plays well with Esri to make it easy to add Manifold speed to your GIS workflow, or to use Manifold as your primary GIS for even greater productivity.
Faster Launch - Manifold launches in half a second.
Small Download - Typical downloads are only 75MB. Fast to download, with no need to consume gigabytes of SSD.
Portable Installation Option - Choose either a classic Windows Installer package or a Portable installation for quick and easy installation.
Way Faster - Do in seconds what takes minutes or hours in Arc or Q. See live video comparisons that show how Manifold speed makes Arc look like it's frozen.
Simpler Workflow - Do in a few clicks using highly integrated point and click tools what takes an hour using a string of clumsy geoprocessing tools in older GIS packages.
Bigger Data - Handle hundreds of GB of data. Open a terabyte project on a desktop PC.
Real SQL Built In - Manifold has real SQL built in that's available all the time with all layers, while older GIS packages like Arc or Q do not. See the Real SQL page for an eye-opening comparison.
Never Crashes - No matter how big or complex the job, Manifold never crashes.
Friendly with All - Interchange using popular GIS formats, including SDE, GDB and MDB Geodatabases.
GIS Without Borders - Manifold knows over 600 languages and countries for formats in numbers and dates, automatically able to show month names and days of the week in those many languages. It features built-in, sophisticated Unicode in all functions, including full Unicode collations for database ordering, a higher level of internationalization than even IBM's respected DB2 enterprise DBMS can achieve.
All the Coordinate Systems - Manifold knows the entire EPSG system plus traditional and custom coordinate sytems and projections, many thousands in all, with automatic matching to coordinate system SRIDs in major spatial databases. Move spatial data seamlessly with a copy and paste between local projects and different enterprise DBMS servers. No other GIS makes it that easy and reliable.
Up to Date - Leverage the latest technology right now: Manifold runs fully 64-bit code that is CPU and GPU parallel throughout, supporting Windows 11 and Windows 10 today.
Pays for Itself - Time is money. Save days and weeks for only $145, fully paid license with free updates.
Easier to Use - Hundreds of point and click, single step, transformations and geoprocessing tools with less setup.
Connect to Everything - Use more formats and data sources than any other GIS.
Collect Data in the Field - Collect data using smart phones or other mobile devices even when there is no Internet or cell connection, with automatic sync to servers when the device gets in range of cell or WiFi service. An easy to use online form builder lets you create rich forms with skip logic and validation to collect data, including point, line and area data. Enjoy one-click dynamic access from Manifold projects to collected data, with effortless copy and paste of collected data into enterprise databases like Oracle, SQL Server, MySQL, and PostgreSQL, or into Esri geodatabases.
Better Data Science - Far more advanced DBMS and SQL for better data science.
Higher Precision - Sub-pixel reprojection for rasters, and 170+ grids built in for NADCON5, HARN, and NTv2.
No Dumbing Down - Arc crashes so much with bigger data you often have to use downsampled, less precise data with Esri. Manifold easily runs with full precision data with no dumbing down required.
No Paywalls - Everything is included and built-in for $145. Get thousands of features and never have to buy anything extra.
No Puzzles - Manifold includes it all in a single, unified, highly orthogonal package that saves you time and money. No need to learn a patchwork of old, third party packages to do what should be built into the GIS itself, and no need to spend days playing software developer, trying to write bug-free code in Python for what Manifold delivers instantly with a point and click. Add Manifold to your GIS toolbox to complement those FOSS tools you know and love, to save time and effort when "free" software costs way more in time.
Better Scripting - If you like to code, Manifold supports 11 standard languages, including Python, V8, C# and Microsoft standard languages. Mix and match scripting inline in different languages on the fly within SQL expressions, and mix native SQL from DBMS packages like Postgres or Oracle within the same query as native, parallel, Manifold SQL. No limits, just ease of use and awesome power for GIS developers.
Avoid Prep Time - Much traditional GIS is complex prep work to enable faster processing by slower tools. Manifold speed allows skipping unnecessary prep work for lower cost and faster response.
Agility - Faster performance and reduced complexity let you incorporate changes in data and analytics requirements faster and more easily. Bring agility to your organization instead of wasting time trying to get around the limitations of slower tools.
Super Documentation - Numerous videos provide a fast and easy start, and a lavishly illustrated, online User Manual written by full-time, professional, technical writers covers every detail of Manifold with hundreds of step by step examples. The API guide for developers provides hundreds of programmer to programmer examples, each given in C#, VBScript, and Python.
Honest Quality - Enjoy better quality with near-zero bugs. Bugs never pile up but are immediately eliminated within a week or two. No need to buy a maintenance contract - bug fixes are always free.
Community Driven - A highly active user community guides the product, with new builds on average every two weeks adding hundreds of features per month. No other GIS has such a direct connection to user community requests.
Affordable - For only $145, you can easily afford integrated ease of use, vast and comprehensive capabilities, results that are always correct, crash-free reliability, and eye-popping parallel speed.
Free Viewer - Publish multi-hundred GB projects created in Manifold that anybody can pop open in 1/10th second for free using Manifold Viewer - free to download, no registration required, and no ads or upsell.
System Requirements: (Recommended)
64 bit Windows 10 or Windows 11.
Multicore CPUs with 8 or 12 cores (16 to 24 threads!) have become inexpensive.
Install plenty of RAM. 24 or 32 GB of RAM is super.
Install an NVIDIA GPU of Fermi class or more recent. No need to overspend: a good mid-range card is plenty.
Multi-terabyte-sized disk drives are cheap: give yourself ample free space for data and projects.
SSD drives have become very inexpensive: enjoy extra speed with an SSD.
Two or three monitors provide more room for your desktop. They allow you to keep many windows and panes open at once.
