Capacities of TNTmips Free, Basic, and Pro
TNTmips Free — Learning Tools
TNTmips Free is a version of TNTmips Pro designed for free student use. TNTmips free is not a demo; it is a fully featured geospatial analysis software package. TNTmips Free is exactly the same program as TNTmips Pro except that the license to use it free-of-charge determines the size, number, and complexity of geodata layers you can use in your project and omits some advanced features.
TNTmips Basic — Small Projects
TNTmips Basic is a low-cost upgrade of TNTmips Free with increased capabilities to enable professional geospatial analysis projects of a larger size. Your TNTmips Free can be upgraded to TNTmips Basic at any time using your credit card via PayPal.
Additional features are also activated in TNTmips Basic. You can automatically view any combination of your georeferenced geodata (images, shape, CAD, LIDAR, …) anywhere in the world in full 3D color using your 3D monitor or 3D TV or in anaglyph. Through your Internet connection you can also view any location in the world in 3D using imagery published at microimages.com and by WMS or ARC. Converting the content of your 2D view to a 3D view can use your local DEM or automatically use the global elevation data published at microimages.com.
TNTmips Pro — Global Capabilities
TNTmips Pro is the most comprehensive professional geospatial analysis package available. It is priced much lower than competitive products even when you purchase their entry level versions that subsequently require the purchase of many additional extensions and modules. All of TNTmips Pro's comprehensive geospatial analysis features are included in a single price.
Choose license level based on
the project size,
data complexity, and advanced features you need.

1 Unlimited means that there is no limit on the number of elements in the layer that can be created or
used in TNTmips Pro, however, limits may be imposed by your hardware, other software, or operating
2 Each TNTmips Pro comes with a license purchased by MicroImages from Microsoft to use the Bing Maps image and road layers in every TNT view. This license is valid until the next version of TNTmips Pro is released in January.
3 An additional option is required to print or render a layout directly from a TNT view to a size greater than A3/12x17. This is the only extra option available for TNTmips.
4 TNTmips Pro can prepare and assemble raster, vector, CAD, shape, DEM, tilesets (raster, KML, and SVG), and other geodata types for viewing and other uses in Google Maps, Bing Maps, Google Earth, OpenLayers, and World Wind.
5 SML is MicroImages' powerful geospatial scripting language built into the TNT products. TNTmips Basic can use SML to structure queries, add tools to views, and add internal macro processing methods. Only TNTmips Pro can be used to create "stand alone" SML scripts that can be distributed and run as separate processes under any Pro license to TNTmips, TNTedit, or TNTview.
6 Job Processing = TNTmips Pro will simultaneously execute the same or different independent analysis processes or tasks on each of your processors to greatly improve throughput.
