As well as thousands of minor updates and enhancements, the tiered product suite includes the following new features in 2016.1, some of which are specific to Global Insight Plus (GI+) and Global Discovery (GD):

  • Superior resolution bathymetry
  • Support for Polish, Hungarian and Czech languages – now 24 in total.
  • Time zones with updated DST for 2016/2017
  • Updates to international and administrative boundaries
  • New: Airport runways and perimeters (GI+, GD)

In addition to GeoTIFF format, grid-based layers are now available in MRR (Multi-Resolution Raster) format for high performance display and analysis with MapInfo Professional software. Europa Technologies is believed to be the first MapInfo Partner to offer data products supporting this new data format.

Warren Vick, Founder & Director of Europa Technologies comments, “We are delighted to announce this exceptional new release on this equally unique day of the year. Our global map data suite is often imitated, but seldom matched, and continues to be a cornerstone of our business. With 2106.1, we have once again raised the bar in terms of quality, content and adoption of new industry file formats.”

The new product release will also be available as a service through the award-winning viaEuropa platform. viaEuropa provides access to hosted, high quality cartography as OGC-compliant web services which can be easily consumed by desktop, mobile and web applications.
