New Municipal Bases 1:50000 and 1:1000000 in the Favorite Map Collections
You can already find in the Favorite Map Collections of MiraMon the new Municipal Bases 1:50000 and 1:1000000 from the Cartographic Institute of Catalonia (ICC) with the limit of the new municipality of La Canonja. This limit is not still the official, to the wait of its final passing, but it's the one ICC is distributing at present. The new bases substitute the previous ones in the collections.
New version of Universal MiraMon Map Reader. The new version of the Reader makes possible to free open, look up and print most common SIG formats, without any type of restriction (included no requirement of a certificate of authorship and integrity). Use it as a
viewer of raster layers (like JPEG, TIF, IMG, JPEG2000, MrSID, ECW, etc), vector layers (SHP, DXF, DGN, GPX, GML, ARC, POL, PNT, etc), classic MMZ files or modern WMS and WMTS services. The Reader is free for everybody.
MiraMon at the International Geomatics Week and at the GlobalGeo Fair 2011. Some members of MiraMon participate in the forthcoming International Geomatics Week, to be held in Barcelona between 15 and 17 March 2011,

MiraMon distributes the Digital Elevation Model of 30 meters from the Cartographic Institute of Catalonia in their collection of favorite maps of version 7.
The model is complemented outside Catalonia with the Global Digital Elevation Model of Aster.
Implementation of the 2D similarity transformation (identified by codes 100800400 and 800100400) of the Cartographic Institute of Catalonia for the transformation between datums ED50 and ETRS89
to projected UTM-coordinates 31N. This new transformation is more
accurate and it has been implemented to replace the one in the 7.0e version of
MiraMon, which essentially was treating as equivalent the ETRS89 and WGS84. This
assimilation is sufficiently accurate for maps of smaller detail than 1:5000
but the current exceeds it in accuracy in maps up to 1:1000 or in
certain areas that have higher resolution.
