More Than a Viewer

Manifold Viewer is a read-only subset of Radian Studio, Manifold's new spatial engineering environment that blends geospatial and traditional data capabilities within a single, all-inclusive product. Although Viewer cannot write projects or save edited data back out to the original data sources, Viewer still provides phenomenal capability to view and to analyze almost all possible different types of data in tables, vector geometry, raster data, drawings, maps and images from thousands of different sources. Viewer can open multiple sources at once to blend, extract, transform, analyze, validate, visualize and explore your data. Viewer retains many of Radian's abilities to transform data and combine it with other data sets for visualization. Viewer's huge capacity and speed - hundreds of GB on your desktop, will keep up with the fastest Enterprise DBMS and run ahead of all others. Manifold Viewer is built on the Radian engine so Viewer retains Radian parallel CPU speed and Radian parallel SQL.

Point and Click

Easy Wizardry - Automatic templates deliver data engineering genius for spatial and non-spatial data in tables, imagery, vector geometry and more. Many Radian templates are retained within Viewer.

Spatial SQL

Infinite Power - By far the world's most sophisticated and powerful Spatial SQL, so breathtakingly strong that even with non-spatial data it exceeds older SQL engines. Viewer provides full Radian SQL.

Every Source

Have it All - Viewer can connect to all of the data sources Radian understands, including enterprise DBMS like Oracle, web servers like OSM WMS, Bing, Google and ArcREST, all of GDAL/OGR and hundreds more.

Runs Forever

Viewer runs forever: it is not a limited trial, nagware or full of advertising spam. Viewer can connect to all the other software that Radian can, just read-only, and you can fire up SQL for massive analytics. You can even open Radian projects many levels deep, or open hundreds of other formats.

Online User Manual

Manifold Viewer uses the Radian Studio user manual, with hundreds of lavishly illustrated topics and step-by-step examples. When reading the Radian manual keep in mind Viewer is a subset of Radian: Viewer is read-only and Viewer does not have many key capabilities a paid Radian licence provides. Viewer is still cool.

Feel at Home

Manifold Viewer is a subset of Radian Studio: Viewer is slower than Radian, and Viewer is view-only / read-only, Viewer cannot save projects and Viewer cannot write or export data to any format or link data sources in read/write mode. Viewer can display, but not edit, files such as shapefiles. Viewer can browse and analyze, but not modify, databases. Viewer provides fully CPU parallel SQL, but without GPU parallel supercomputer speed.

Viewer is built on Radian so improvements to Radian, like new formats, will improve Viewer. Radian users can publish huge data in astonishingly fast Radian format that Viewer will instantly pop open for anyone. Viewer delivers amazing performance and outstanding usefulness for anyone working with GIS, spatial data, enterprise DBMS or just wanting to connect to the world of rich data around us.
