Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Software for Macintosh Computers
Entry ID: 01-MAC-GIS-Software-00


Summary
Abstract: macGIS 3.0 streamlines all the steps involved in creating and using a raster geographic information system, from scanning source maps and digitizing new data on-screen to generating new maps and wire-frame views for use in desk top publishing.

Analytic functions include Boolean overlay, proximity and coincidence, visibility, and a wide array of statistical and spatial analytic tools. Features include a macro-maker which translates menu selections and mouse clicks into a text-based version of any analytic command which can then be edited, stored as a separate document, or re-executed.

Access Constraints macGIS is only available for purchase.
Use Constraints macGIS 3.0 runs on any modern Macintosh (Mac LC or newer). We recommend at least 4 megabytes of RAM and a 200 megabyte or larger hard disk. The bigger your data sets, the more RAM and disk space needed. A 8 mg Mac is adequate for data layers up to 100,000 cells per layer. Several software packages are quite useful as companions to macGIS: MacDraw Pro or Canvas, a bit map editor such as Photoshop, and a scanning device. There are no special operating system requirements. macGIS 2.0 is System 7.5 and PowerPC compatible, and requires at least System 7.
