GeoMedia Desktop 2020 Update 1


Release Date: Wednesday, March 18, 2020

GeoMedia is a powerful, flexible GIS management platform that lets you aggregate data from a variety of sources and analyze them in unison to extract clear, actionable information. GeoMedia provides simultaneous access to geospatial data in almost any form and displays it in a single unified map view for efficient processing, analysis, presentation, and sharing. GeoMedia’s live data connections and queries make it ideal for extracting information from an array of dynamically changing data to support making informed, smarter decisions.  

This is an update for all three tiers of GeoMedia Desktop 2020 - Essentials, Advantage and Professional.  It contains fixes and enhancements. GeoMedia Desktop 2020 Update 1 is an incremental install on top of the full install of GeoMedia Desktop 2020. 

For full details on the new features and issues resolved, refer to the Release Guide available from the Setup Manager prior to installation, or the Start menu after installation.
