Looking for MPSuperShape beta testers... RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • MPSuperShape is an add-in for Microsoft MapPoint for shape manipulation (union, intersection, expand, convex hull, etc), plus shape import/export to various formats.

    I am currently working on v3 of MPSuperShape. This will be a free upgrade for existing licensed users of MPSuperShape v2.*, but it will include support for Windows 8 and a few relatively minor additions. It will also move forward from .NET 2 to .NET 4.

    The Windows 8 support is requiring a complete rewrite of the projection/coordinate system support in the ESRI 'Shape' (SHP) file and MapInfo 'MIF' import/export options. This is where I need the beta testers.
    The new version will continue to support multiple coordinate systems and datums, but the MapInfo 'MIF' export option will be restricted to the WGS84 datum due to limitations of the MIF 'Coordsys' specification.

    Further information on MPSuperShape can be found at: http://www.mpsupershape.com

    A v3 beta should be ready in about a week. Let me know if you are interested in helping with the testing.
