There’s a new Mac OS X version of iMap, a free mapping program for the Mac. It’s designed for mapping large amounts of latitude/ longitude data.
“iMap is Mac-first and it is the first mapping program available on Mac OS X,” Dr. Peter Schols of Belgium’s Laboratory of Plant Systematics, the folks behind the product, told MacCentral. “We think the release of iMap is of great interest for the scientific and educational community.”
The classic version of iMap has been available for two weeks. The Mac OS X version adds PDF export capabilities on top of Aqua support. Additional maps and MacTaxon lite, a small database application that exports your latitude/longitude data to an iMap datafile will be available later this week. A Windows version of iMap is planned for this summer.
iMap for Mac OS X can be downloaded (it’s a 5.1 MB file) from the product Web site.
