  Company Information

Purpose

MicroImages is a software development company focused on the development and support of TNTgis geospatial software.

MicroImages works closely with experts in many different fields to create innovative software tools for geo-technical work. We take pride in our agile development methods — specifically being flexible and responsive to customer requests and suggestions. This includes collaborating with TNTgis consultants, resellers, and clients in deciding what features to develop, ideas for ways to implement features, and getting feedback from those trying out new features in the development version.

Software Release & Updates

We release a new version of TNTgis in January of every year. New editions for current and previous year's releases are posted every week on our download page, providing rapid access to all available changes. We also post weekly editions for the development version for users to try out new features for the next year's release.

Support

MicroImages maintains an experienced staff of technical support specialists with computer science or related degrees. These professionals provide direct world-wide support to MicroImages' clients without cost. Technical questions, error reports, and new feature requests are responded to quickly. The Contact Support form available via the Help menu of TNTgis software is an efficient way to start an email conversation with us. MicroImages' phones are answered directly by real people and not by recorded messages or selection menus.

History

MicroImages, Inc. was founded in 1986 by Dr. Lee D. Miller and Michael J. Unverferth with its first software product, the Map and Image Processing System (MIPS). MIPS had been developed in a university setting for image processing on microcomputers. The software evolved into a broad, integrated system that includes features for image processing, GIS, CAD, TIN, desktop cartography, spatial database management, and visualization. In 1993, MIPS was renamed TNTmips and made available for all Windows and Mac computers. MicroImages has a long and reliable release history with short release cycles. Since 2004 a new version has been released every year containing new features along with weekly editions for updates.
