[NPL] Autodesk MapGuide 4.0 Now with Java

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

NEW RELEASE OF AUTODESK MAPGUIDE OFFERS FASTER, WIDER ACCESS TO DATA
Release 4.0 Now Shipping with Java, Support for Non-Mapping
Coordinates

San Rafael, CA, January 25, 1999-Autodesk, Inc. announced that today
it has begun worldwide shipping of Autodesk MapGuide Release 4.0.
The new release extends the geographic information system (GIS)
industry's leading online mapping software to more users, eases
access to facility management data, and delivers all significant new
features requested by customers.

Autodesk MapGuide software is a Web-based GIS that reduces the high
operational costs expenses related to the distribution of maps and
associated information at utilities, telecommunications companies,
governments and other organizations. As a complement to other GIS
software or as a stand alone system, the software distributes
intelligent maps, schematics and reports that reside on paper,
microfilm, or in multiple, remote databases to hundreds or thousands
of users at a fraction of the cost of traditional GIS software.
Current customers include ScottishTelecom, Pacific Gas & Electric,
the City of Los Angeles, and the Hong Kong Lands Department. Visit
www.autodesk.com/mapguide for a free download, starter applications,
and live demos.

The latest version extends to Macintosh and Sun Solaris users the
ability to access live, interactive maps and associated data with the
new Autodesk MapGuide Viewer, Java Edition. Additionally, the new
release expands use beyond the browser, as it can be incorporated
directly into Visual Basic applications.

"Adding a Java-based Viewer to what was already a highly scalable,
secure solution means that all of customers' employees can use
Autodesk MapGuide as a decision support system," says Joe Astroth,
Ph.D, Autodesk vice president for GIS.

"Deploying Autodesk MapGuide in Pima County has finally given
end-users easy, very inexpensive access to the data that we have
spent the last 10 years creating," says Jack Lloyd, GIS Manager,
Department of Transportation, Pima County, Arizona. "We have never
worked with a better solution for delivering GIS data to the desktop."

Facility managers, already heavy users of the product, will find the
new release streamlines the development of FM applications and
provides interactive access to inside plant FM designs and data in
non-mapping system coordinates. And, Autodesk MapGuide Release 4.0
now includes DWG and DXF support for faster access to maps and
drawings in these FM industry standard file formats.

Autodesk included every significant new feature requested by users in
Autodesk MapGuide Release 4.0. Most notably, users now can rapidly
integrate archived microfilm and paper maps and schematics not
previously available electronically by overlaying multiple scanned
raster maps with bitonal transparency. Additionally, users can serve
gigabytes of raster data in seconds.

Autodesk MapGuide Release 4.0 supports a number of industry standard
web development platforms, and comes bundled with Allaire's
ColdFusion 4 Application Server Professional Edition and version 4 of
Allaire's ColdFusion Studio Software, the leading cross-platform Web
application server.

Worldwide Availability

Autodesk MapGuide software is now shipping in the Americas in US
English. In Europe, the Middle East and Africa, the company expects
to ship International English, French and German versions in the
first half of February, and Italian and Spanish versions in early
March. The suggested entry-level retail price in the United States
and Canada is US$9,990. VIP program pricing is available in North
America. Users outside the United States and Canada should contact
local Authorized Autodesk Resellers for pricing.
