Thuban 0.8.0 Released
After quite a few months since 0.2.0, I'm pleased to announce that
the next release of Thuban, version 0.8.0, is finally here!
There are lots of new features to explore. Here's an overview:
- Projection Management
The new projection dialog makes it possible to import, export,
create and select projections which can then be applied to
layers and maps.
- Automatic Classification Generation
The tedious work of adding new groups to a classification is
greatly simplied with this new tool. Classificatons can be
generated using uniform distributions, unique values, or
quantiles. The visual properties (e.g. line width, line color,
and fill color) are also adjusted according to predefined
color schemes, or a custom scheme.
- Image Layers
Images that are supported by GDAL (e.g. GeoTIFF) can
be added to Thuban as layers. They then behave just as layers
do and can be raised, lowered, and even projected.
- Table Joins
Independent tables can be opened with Thuban and joined with
other tables. The results can then be exported or treated just
as any other table in the session.
- Table Queries
The table view has a new query function which allows shapes to
be selected based on certain criteria which their fields match.
Results from a query are highlighted both in the table and in
the map. Queries can also be refined with other search criteria.
The legend provides a more user-friendly face to the session tree
(which is still available). It displays each layer along with any
classification. The layers can be raised, lowered, shown, or
hidden through the toolbar on the legend. A layer's properties
are accessible by double-clicking a layer or selecting the
- Improved Printing
Maps are framed and printed with the legend and scalebar.
- Export under Windows
On Windows platforms maps can be exported to Enhanced Meta-File
