AGIS is a user friendly mapping and simple geographic information system for Microsoft Windows 95, 98, ME, NT, 2000 and XP. 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 used by AGIS are ASCII text, so it is easier to create such files using other systems. 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. High quality map images can be copied to the clipboard and pasted into popular packages such as Microsoft Word, or save directly to your hard disk as jpeg or bmp files.
The only place that files are added to your system during installation are in the AGIS software directory. No changes or additions are made to files anywhere else. Methods to uninstall AGIS are also provided with the program.
Be sure to try out the new animation and map serving capability by running the example script files from the File|Run script menu item. There is a lot of information about this new capability in the on-line help file.
A tutorial to help you with making your own map displays has also been prepared. This is contained in an installation file called tutor158.exe which is 1,086 K in size and contains more than 70 pages. To install it, copy the tutor158.exe file to the directory/folder that you would like to install it to, and run it. The file is a self extracting zip file.
The tutorial is in html format, so after unpacking it, start it up by opening the index.htm file using your web browser. There is also an Adobe PDF version that can be opened directly and printed if you have the Acrobat Reader software installed.
