TNTatlas is a handy, easy-to-use application specially designed to help you view hierarchical atlases by analyzing them.
TNTatlas uses HyperIndex stacks: spatially related layers of information from different sources and data types linked geographically or spatially. You author a HyperIndex stack of spatial information by using TNTmips. The stack you build will use objects from one or more TNT Project Files: collections of raster, vector, shapes, CAD, TIN, database, and text objects.
TNTmips has a variety of tools to create and edit objects, and you may import digital materials from a wide variety of formats such as TIFF, TARGA, GIF, DXF, DBF, and other commercial image processing, mapping, CAD, and database formats.
Your HyperIndex stack can also include database information attached to graphical elements or image cells on the display, so the user can select any line element or cell and immediately view the attached database record.
The TNTatlas user could select a segment of a red highway and view database information that includes surface material, wear condition, traffic statistics, and scheduled repairs.
The objects and views in your electronic atlas can be as complex as you like. Your stack of spatial information can be established to display multiple objects:
· side-by-side (before and after views),
· overlaying objects (vector and CAD lines over raster images),
· graphical symbol overlays (such as icons or pie diagrams), or
· additional reference information (like map grids, text blocks, and legends).
TNTatlas gives you the opportunity to publish spatial information for wide-scale, multi-platform distribution. You can put together complex stacks of relational imagery, maps, drawings, and databases for use everywhere from the kiosks in the front lobby to the president's suite.
Whether you use TNTatlas to support a number of network users with frequently updated project materials, or to publish a single stack that can find its way to computers anywhere in the world, you will be taking advantage of the new ways TNTatlas provides for viewing and managing spatially related materials.
TNTatlas is the electronic publication tool you need for today's geospatial information.
