Thinkmap 5 - Dynamic Data-Driven Visualization - Now in HTML5
Major Product Upgrade Adds Features and Flexibility and Brings Thinkmap to Mobile Devices and Modern Browsers with no Plugin Required
The new Thinkmap is lightweight, and can be integrated easily into a full featured web site. For example, Microsoft selected the Thinkmap SDK to visualize its Unified Communications Web API. "We chose Thinkmap because its visualizations could help developers easily see the myriad of capabilities in our powerful API," said Senior Product Manager Albert Kooiman. "Because it's cross-platform, it opens up a useful visualization of our API to any user, whether they come to our site from a desktop, an iPad or a Windows surface. We're very pleased with the results."
Because of its use of HTML5, Thinkmap 5 allows for write-once, display anywhere visualization development. The same Thinkmap front-end works on desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones. In addition to supporting a wider range of devices and platforms, the new Thinkmap loads faster, offers more flexible configuration options, and integrates seamlessly with other Web content.
Thinkmap 5 is Faster
The Thinkmap 5 Visualization Component is built to offer more flexibility in its display of Thinkmaps.
Thinkmap 5 adds a number of new visualizations to the SDK. These include
Thinkmap has also improved the Thinkmap Server, enabling tighter Integration between the Visualization Component and the Datasource API. Complex queries are passed through to the server resulting in faster, more efficient displays of complex information.
The Thinkmap SDK (software development kit) is the most fully-featured SDK for visualization of relational data available in the marketplace. The product offers software developers the ability to quickly build sophisticated applications with precise control of filtering, display parameters, and animation of data. Through its well designed API, the Thinkmap SDK provides a balance between ease-of-use and the demands required for enterprise-level visualization applications. The Thinkmap SDK comes with complete documentation of the API, including several pre-configured visualizations connecting to a sample data set. Most customers get started quickly by adapting a Thinkmap example to their needs. The typical Thinkmap customer has a full-featured Thinkmap that connects to an external data source within a matter of days.
The Thinkmap SDK is sold in three editions: Standard, Professional, and Flex. More information is available at www.thinkmap.com or by contacting Thinkmap's sales department at 212-285-8600.
