New Capabilities


With this new maintenance release there has been a focus on improving our data management workflows for managing Pitney Bowes Mapinfo TAB files and ESRI image files. Along with these changes we have worked on multiple minor enhancements and defects. This release is implementable through a minor upgrade to DAP 11 and 11.0.1.

Pitney Bowes Mapinfo TAB files To better support MapInfo TAB files we have adjusted our cataloging process to natively store TAB files.  Preserving the original TAB files ensures there is no remapping of symbols and colors when moving between DAP and MapInfo environments. These changes do not effect the workflow when moving from MapInfo TAB to another format.
TIFFs Generated from ArcGIS 9.2/9.3 To support this image format the ESRI integration module has been amended to create a rectified geotif that is stored inside a cache directory with the same name as the original file plus a .cache extension and then the image is cataloged. Requires ESRI integration module.
DAP Administrator Reports Records and displays the user that is accessing DAP "Geodap" where the real user name is displayed on the report generated by the DAP Administrator
Warped Images Warped images can now be cataloged as rectified geotif.
