Description AGIS is a mapping and simple geographic information system. Maps and data can be provided by the user in the form of text files either created by other programs, or typed using a text editor. All control files are ASCII text. The program has sufficient control dialogs built in to create and edit all control information without requiring the user to understand the structure of these files. Map images can be copied to the clipboard and pasted into packages such as Microsoft Word, or saved directly to hard disk as JPEG or BMP files. A multi-document interface allows the concurrent display of a number of individual maps, each composed of a number of map and data layers. The latitude and longitude of the cursor is displayed at all times when over a displayed map, and cursor types are selected to allow zooming and measuring. Output can be pre-viewed, and printed on any device supported by Windows. A system of "templates" are used to control display attributes of maps and data. Supported projections: Mercator, Peters Cylindrical, Miller Cylindrical, Equidistant Cylindrical, Universal Polar Stereographic, Lambert Cylindrical, Polyconic, Orthographic. A built in scripting language allows creation of map animations and to link to other applications such as database queries. Scripting, combined with the ability to save map views in a number of raster formats also allows it to provide low cost vector-based map serving to web pages. Supported map import/export formats: Arc export .e00 (import), South African National Exchange Standard (import), Garmin GPS .trk/.wpt/.rte (import), Map Info .mif/.mid (export). Map files are stored as binary files after conversion from a simple text import format. On importing a map, the projection type, projection origin, minimum resolution and map boundaries can be specified by the user.
