Improvements in MCAS-S 3.2 (2018):

  • A 64 bit installer for improved performance on 64-bit operating systems. This allows more layers with greater resolution. The 32-bit version is still maintained.
  • Live links to detailed metadata for each layer. You can add live hyperlinks in the .tip files for more descriptive information about each data layer.
  • More options for processing and analysing time series data.
  • Improved labeling and ranking from fields in your categorical data.​

Improvements in MCAS-S 3.1:

  • An improved workspace with new toolbars and zoom and pan options, multiple layers can be added, resized, aligned, exported and d​eleted at once, and new colour ramps have been added.
  • More options for classifying data layers include standard deviation, natural breaks and a 'reclass' classification for values or classes of interest which don't fall at one end of an existing scale.
  • Overlays can be included in analysis by creating distance from points and lines turning overlays into primary layers. Fig19p26.png
  • Editing composite functions is now possible through the function calculator.
  • Multi-ways now show a 'coincidence count' of how many input criteria are met.
  • Users can report on values at points and find the correlation between two layers through a 'correlation report'.
  • Time stamped versions of MCAS-S projects are saved in the History folder helping to keep track of decisions and allowing users to revert to a previous option.

Improvements in MCAS-S 3:

  • accommodation of map layers with different grid resolutions in single MCAS-S projects
  • 'sensitivity analysis' to test change in weighting of input map layers
  • the creation of new user map layers using paint and fill functionalityFig24p31-new.jpg
  • the display of point data overlays such as cities
  • faster processing through improved computational performance.
