Carmenta Engine 5.0 - GIS Toolkit

At the ongoing Eurosatory International Defense Week in Paris, Carmenta announces the release of Carmenta Engine 5.0 - a new generation of the company’s GIS toolkit for mission critical applications. The new version takes advantage of the latest developments in hardware, OS and platform technologies by extensive support for hardware accelerated graphics, multi-core CPUs and Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF).

On top of the highly optimized native C++ kernel, users can either use the native C++ API or the WPF compatible .NET API.

The new .NET API is designed to conform with .NET conventions to make it intuitive and straight forward for developers to use. The API calls are 2-3 times faster since the API now directly accesses the C++ kernel.

“We have improved our core strengths and made the product work seamlessly with the latest software technologies and development tools. Being designed, implemented and tuned for performance and flexibility, Carmenta Engine 5.0 provides a competitive environment for creating mission critical GIS applications. Our technology offers significant cost reductions and time-to-market benefits to our customers” says J├Ârgen Simonsson, director of Product Management & Marketing at Carmenta.

Carmenta Engine 5.0 will be released in the third quarter of 2010, and is now available in a limited customer release program. For more information, please contact Carmenta or visit
