What’s New in GeoCue 2011

GeoCue 2011.1 is the major GeoCue feature upgrade release for 2011. GeoCue has now been in heavy day-to-day production (in commercial release) for about 7 years. Many of the new features that have appeared in GeoCue are a direct result of the feedback that we received from our user base of GeoCue customers.

GeoCue Version 2011.1 and the associated CuePacs contain a number of new features. The highlights of these new features are described in the What’s New in GeoCue 2011 document with details provided in the subsequent chapters.
