1. Cartographica 1.5b2 Available

    This is the seventh follow-up to Onward to 1.5 documenting the move to the 1.5 release.

    It's been a quick few weeks since the last update. We're refining some new testing processes (yet more automated testing) and that exposed some issues that we needed to take care of in the UI. As an added bonus, we've got yet more modern code in the system.

    A few of the changes for this release, besides a number of bug fixes and visual tweaks:

    • Updated our internal version of Python which is used for Column Formulas. Previously, we'd used the OS …

  2. Cartographica 1.5b1 Available

    This is the sixth follow-up to Onward to 1.5 documenting the move to the 1.5 release.

    The last month or so has been a head's-down push to remove all bugs we could find and get Cartographica 1.5 to beta so that we can release it before the end of the year. It's been a busy fall, and there was some delay due to some iOS 13-induced emergency work on CartoMobile, but Cartographica is looking very strong going into version 1.5, and a lot of the work that we've done in automation and code clean up should …

  3. Preview Cartographica 1.5:New Georeferencing

    This is the fifth follow-up to Onward to 1.5 documenting the move to the 1.5 release.

    It's taken a bit of time to get to this development release (d17), but that's because I've been working on an oft-requested improvement for Raster fans. In this case, it's a new Georeferencing system. It's not completely finished yet (development version, remember), but the bulk of it is in and solid, and I'd appreciate feedback from anyone who works with Georeferencing Raster images.

    I'm leaving the existing Georeference Editor (located in the Edit > Georeference… menu) in place for the time being, and …

  4. Cartographica 1.5d16 Available

    This is the fourth follow-up to Onward to 1.5 documenting the move to the 1.5 release.

    We've got some goodies for the Raster fans out there in this development release. I don't have time to get all of the documentation complete before posting the code, but the big feature this week is some serious Raster DEM (height) analysis. We're picking up most of the tools and options that are available in GDAL and thus much of what's in QGIS on this front. Future blog posts and docs will go into some detail about the options and the provenance …

  5. Cartographica 1.5d15 Available

    This is the third follow-up to Onward to 1.5 documenting the move to the 1.5 release.

    For those who noticed the update today, you'll note that the release notes were very short. All of the work the last two weeks was on internals. Much of the work was performance enhancement and modernization of some of the older code.

    Stay tuned for the next release which should be more exciting.

    Test versions

    Today we're releasing the next development test version. This is not for the faint of heart. The development test versions are available by changing your Preferences to …

  6. Cartographica 1.5d14 Available

    This is the second follow-up to Onward to 1.5 documenting the move to the 1.5 release.

    This release should be the last update related to the replacement of our key libraries. I've finished getting up to the current 2.4.x release of GDAL and the latest component libraries, which should enable better and more compatibility with file formats.

    New File formats

    Updating to the latest GDAL libraries provides us with access to a number of new file formats. I'm still working at adding tests for the new formats, so if you have files of these types that …

  7. Cartographica 1.5d8 Available

    This is the first follow-up to Onward to 1.5 documenting the move to the 1.5 release.

    The last few weeks has been filled with a lot of internal library updates (and a week-long break for a long-delayed vacation) and preparation for building and testing under 10.15.

    I've now posted 1.5d8 which is also available in the Development feed in Cartographica's Check For Updates…

    Among the updates are major upgrades in the libraries we use for importing and exporting Vector and Raster files. These should mostly improve performance, reliability, and compatibility, but there are also some additional …
