[Brattleboro, Vermont]---Cartographic Technologies, Inc. announces the release of Visual Editor for AML (VA). Visual Editor for AML is designed specifically for ArcInfo programmers with features to delight both advanced and novice users.

Visual Editor for AML can improve your programming efficiency, effectiveness and creativity through it's unique maintenance features, such as the librarian function to help find AMLs through keyword searches. Quick access lists are automatically created for all data files, sub files, variables, routines, labels and comment lines within each AML. Use these lists to quickly navigate through your AML or use other navigation features such as select by line number, find, search and replace.

"Visual Editor for AML is a real time saver and it makes writing AMLs more enjoyable," says Nathan Dansereau, GIS Manager at Franklin Regional Council of Governments. Novice and advanced programmers alike will love Visual Editor for AML's ability to find non-ArcInfo commands, ambiguous and truncated commands, directives and functions. If you forget an argument for one of the two thousand plus commands, just access the on-line help and paste the command syntax right into your AML.

Visual Editor for AML provides greater control over your AML development. Choose format preferences for colors, indentation, case, and save options and then quickly apply them to your AML through the speed bar. Speed up AML development by setting function keys for your most commonly used commands, comments, and labels. Immediately confirm that your code is working, by using the quick save and run feature.

VA beta tester and Senior Analyst for GIS/Trans Ltd., Steve Bower noted that, "This is an excellent product. I look forward to the final release." The final release for Visual Editor for AML is now available direct from Cartographic Technologies Inc., or via download at
