Point and Click

Easy Wizardry - Over 270 automatic templates deliver data engineering genius for spatial and non-spatial data in tables, imagery, vector geometry and more.

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.

Easy Scripting

Have it All - Radian includes V8 JavaScript plus integrated scripting in IronPython, IronRuby, C#, JScript, JScript.NET, VB.Net, VBScript and F#. No need to buy extras.

"Radian Studio! Wow! It is really as fast as advertised." - Forum post

Radian Includes Everything

No need to learn multiple packages - Radian does it all.

Limitless Data

Radian knows more data sources than any other GIS or spatial data tool, including all Enterprise DBMS vendors, all raster and vector formats and all OGC and web servers. Radian knows all projections worldwide. Instantly pop open 100GB images. Transform any raster. Edit millions of vectors, including curvilinear geometry. Vast capacity, stunning speed and godlike power. Nothing else comes close at any price.

Infinite Spatial DBMS

Radian runs faster than anything else for spatial work, automatically executing fully-parallel Spatial SQL standalone within Radian's parallel DBMS engine or dispatched to your favorite DBMS or in a mixture of both - all within the same query. Crunch big data using massively-parallel GPU exclusively within Radian or use Radian as the ultimate client to enhance your favorite DBMS. Guaranteed to play well with all.

Honest Quality

Radian is almost impossible to crash. Feed it massively complex SQL and Radian executes with blistering speed and total accuracy. Every time. Radian always runs no matter how complex your task, no matter how big your data and no matter how many cores go to work for you at lightning speed. Worried a big job will crash your GIS? Don't settle for software that crashes twice a week. Insist on honest quality. Get Radian. Together with incredible speed and power, Radian delivers rock-solid reliability.

"As a long time Manifold user, I'm simply awestruck by the performance gains. My colleagues are mostly ESRI users, but a few simple demos of intersecting large spatial datasets have won admiration from all."

Easy to Play

Effortless power, endless capabilities and everything built into a single, unified package makes Radian easy to play. Read, write or link to a seeming infinity of formats so you can always get the data you want. No limits to data types and no limits to SQL. Connect to any DBMS, anytime, anywhere. Use the SQL you already know and Radian parallelizes it for you. Automatically. Superfast and rich dialogs preview changes on the fly so you are never surprised. No need to buy anything else, to learn yet another server, to decode yet another quirky package or to spend endless hours playing software integrator. Do what you want right now. Just launch Radian and make great things happen. Everything just works. Always.

See the User Video showing how Radian can not only connect to ESRI gdb file geodatabases but slice and dice layers using Radian SQL as well.

The Power of GPU

Radian can use a $50 GPU plug-in card to speed up many spatial functions by 50 to 100 times. A $150 GPU card provides a thousand cores to crush big jobs. Use the same SQL you already know. Radian automatically creates and launches massively parallel GPU code. No manual coding required. Do in seconds what once took hours. Effortlessly. Only Radian can do that. No other GIS or spatial SQL tool runs GPU.

What Users Say Manifold is by far the fastest

Users report Radian technology is the fastest GIS technology ever. Manifold products using Manifold's parallel Radian technology save you time, labor and money by running faster than anything else. Search the Forum to see how well-known users report breakthrough performance gains, like this post:

"I have recently tinkering with lidar point cloud storage in Manifold Future and from what I have seen so far want to congratulate Manifold engineering on the incredible achievement that is the Radian Map format.

Out of idle curiosity, I have imported ever larger lidar pointclouds into MAP storage with a view to assessing whether Radian technology offers a potential solution to our ongoing problem we have with lidar storage, discovery and analysis.

Encouraged by my findings, I now have our organization's entire point cloud dataset and all las attribution stored as a single table containing some 1.72 billion points. Once imported, I have been absolutely astonished by the performance opening the map file which as shown in the screen grab below is ~0.4 of a second! Considering that following this blink of an eye, all of the data is available in a parallel data structure and ready to go with Radian's parallel analytics, this represents a huge achievement and opens up a host of possibilities.

How many records is 1.72 billion? I had no real comprehension, but at the height an individual record shows in attached the screen grab, if I were to scroll through the entire table, I'd be at it a while as it would be 6820 kilometers long! ... Sorry, I meant 8620km long even more astonishing."

8620 kilometers is bigger than the radius of the Earth. Manifold's Radian technology is so fast it can open and display a table that big in less than half a second, on a desktop computer. Amazing!
