This section covers various Maptitude programming topics.
Maptitude comes with its own “GISDK” macro language, but can also be automated using COM and .NET interfaces. All three mechanisms share the same rich API.
- A Simple GISDK Demo demonstrates the use of the GISDK macro language with a custom dialog box, simple statement constructs and API calls.
- Close all Views with GISDK demonstrates a short piece of GISDK macro language that can be executed immediately, in order to close all Data View windows.
- Using Python to Filter and Correct Data demonstrates the use of Python to control Maptitude’s API. The example cleans and imports Oklahoma disposal well injection data.
- Plotting Place Names from Natural Text in Python 3 demonstrates the use of the new Python3 interface to draw annotation on a Maptitude map. The example plots place names from H.G. Wells’ War of the Worlds that have been extracted using the Natural Language Toolkit (NLTK).
