Open Source

Mapyrus Version 1.002

Jessica Thornsby

Version 1.002 of Mapyrus is now available.

Mapyrus is open source, Java-based software for creating plots of points, lines, polygons, and labels in PostScript, PDF, SVG, and Web image output formats. It features transparent colours, and optional anti-aliasing of lines and labels.

With this version, running the GUI with Java Web Start should no longer throw SecurityException errors, and ‘REPROJECT’ function has been added for transforming coordinates.

Mapyrus can run as a stand-alone utility program, or as a self-contained web server. It can be downloaded from Sourceforge.
