BING AND GOOGLE MAPS HAVE CHANGED

ATDI’s continuous software development has taken in the latest changes in Google and Bing maps.

The newest versions of the company’s family of radio planning tools – ICS telecom v.12.3.1, HTZ warfare c.18.3.1 and ICS LT & designer v.3.3.1 – are now available for download from ATDI’s customer portal.

ATDI managing director Peter Paul comments: “A thing we have in common with Microsoft and Google is constant development. Both companies have improved their mapping functions and we have enhanced our software to ensure we take maximum advantage of that.

“Nothing stands still – not the economy nor customer needs, and certainly not technology. It takes a company as compact and agile as ATDI to keep up with it all.”

Bing Maps were integrated into ATDI products in 2011 and provide a high degree of image accuracy, ease of use and visually pleasing reports and printouts. The availability of street names and other landmarks is a useful feature for users of ATDI software.

Google Earth allows ATDI customers to get access to data types including MapInfo and to use ESRI shape configurations for vector information and polygons, along with ASCII Grid and TIFF files for faster information.

“Any customers wishing to continue using these features will need to upgrade and our engineers will assist anyone who needs help,” Peter comments.
