Portable Atlas (PAT)

It's a free, portable and feature riched atlas which can run under DOS and UNIX. The package is enriched with a nice set of data. Full-mapping function with 70+ projections, French or English language, API supported, CIA database linked. The outputs of the product are in portable formats (GIF, JPG, PNG...) while input requirements are E00 (ArcInfo export), Shapefile (ArcView/ArcGIS)... suitable for large number of users.

Thanks a lot Ian Macky for this contribution.
