What’s New

First and foremost, the CartoVista Viewer in version 6.5 has been greatly enhanced with several performance improvement that help display data faster then ever.

Certain types of thematic analysis can now be displayed up to 10 times faster than before. This opens the door to more possibilities to illustrate data changes with efficiency. We gathered feedback from end-users often requiring the ability to find the most optimal route to one or multiple destinations from our maps.

A typical use case for this is to find the nearest service provider (garage for instance) from a location on the map. Now you can easily add such functionality with our new routing tool.
