# Almost ready the Manifold manual for municipal use

Some time ago I told you about being bogged down making a manual, as it is almost ready thanks to the brilliant support of a technician who learned to use Manifold by force but is now an expert. With it we build the index and it has been the one that has developed the experimental part of a large part of the document.

Municipal SIG in Manifold System

The objective of the manual is to constitute a basic and practical guide for the implementation of a Geographic Information System in a municipality or town hall using Manifold GIS. It is built based on the modular contextual scalability of the GIS projects that I told you about a while ago and each section is made up of a methodology "what is it", "how it is made" and "what product is obtained". Below I show you the index.

1. Ricardo Castro says:

I urgently need to get the Manifold manual, how can I get it in Argentina?

2. Edmundo Rios Miranda says:

If I'm interested If you send it to me, you will help me a lot.

Thank you.

3. old dog says:

How do I get this manual? I need to learn how to use this software with extreme urgency

4. there only you want it in version "as is". Let me know and I'll send it to you in the mail

5. Edmundo Rios Miranda says:

I'm a Manifold 8.0 user and I'm surprised at its power, however, I have little time to learn and use it. I am very interested in getting the manual.

Greetings from Mexico !!!!

6. We hope to release it in January of 2009

7. Laura Ramírez says:

I am trying to turn to use Manifold but I have to admit that it has complicated a bit and I would like to know how I can access the manual they are elaborating thanks in advance
Regards!!!

8. Very interesting, I also learned to use manifold by force just like your colleague. The municipality of the place where I live does not have a territorial administration system and for some time I have been analyzing the possibility of a geofumada with manifold, because of its low cost and how powerful it is, however, I am always in doubt as to whether I will be able to train people in the use of the tool because it is not easy to learn for someone who is not disabled with a sig, even for someone who is.

Well I hope you find the manual well, I will follow it carefully.

regards
