Cartographica 1.2.3 (800) (Intel Only)

Cartographica 1.2.3 (800) (Intel Only) | Mac Os X | 47 MB

Cartographica is designed for people who need to work with geospatial data to create maps, analyze data, convert between formats, and discover new information about your data and the world in which it exists. As such, we have emphasized easy importation, exploration, analysis, and output in the design of Cartographica and hope that you find it powerful, yet fun to use and easy to explore.


Cartographica if full of features to make it easy for your to explore, analyze and present your geospatial data. Here is just a sample of the facilities available in Cartographica. Features added or enhanced for 1.2 are marked with .
Flexible File Import

Cartographica has a wide range of data import capabilities, nearly assuring that you can turn your data into maps. Bring in your georeferenced raster data (like orthophotos and satellite imagery), your vector data from almost any source, or even CSV text files. A more complete list of imported and exported formats is available, including Personal Geodatabase.

Online Map Service Support

There's lots of good data available on the Internet. Getting data from a Web Map Server or Web Feature Server into your map document is a snap. Just load up the area you're looking to cover and select the Map Server. Cartographica will do the rest, from matching the coordinate system to testing the boundaries, to warping the graphics if necessary to meet your current CRS.

If you don't know where to start, just add a Live Map from Bing™ Maps or OpenStreetMap with one simple command.

Rapid Filtering

This is a Macintosh, and you'd expect fast filtering of data. With Cartographica, you get just that. Using the search box, you can filter on any column. With multi-variable searching and boolean operations you can explore your data even more effectively!

Sophisticated Layout

Cartographica provides sophisticated print layouts, including the ability to put multiple maps on the same page, overlay scale bars, compasses, and legends, or keep them aside, and add text notations. Even have multiple copies of the same map on a page with different zoom levels, extents, and visible layers.

Flexible Styles

Styles define what layers should look like in a map. Easily put together a simple style based on fill and stroke colors, or create a sophisticated style set for a layer allowing easy identification of features with different attributes. Along with your colors, add labels for features, including data from any column or columns and on multiple lines if necessary.

Direct Editing

Need to define geometry for your map without exact coordinates? Cartographica lets you create a new feature, or edit an existing one with ease. Just double-click and move the control points. Styles and related information follow right along. Merge vector features into a single feature–consolidate roads or GPS tracks, join polygons.

Image Georeferencing

New for 1.2 is the ability to georeference (or edit the georeferencing information for) imagery. Georeferencing can be done with a standard matrix, or by adding or changing Ground Control Points (GCPs). And when you're just starting to georeference an image, you can use our Fit Display button as a first approximation. You can control transparency while you move the image around or warp it into place, so you can see just how things line up.

Undo Support

We believe that exploring geospatial data should be risk-free. Why should you have to live with every change you make? Cartographica's ubiquitous undo capabilities means whatever changes you've just made... you can undo them... and then put them back.

Layer Transparency

Take advantage of the sophisticated graphics you love on the Macintosh by using transparency to see through one level of data to the next. It is, of course, adjustable on a per-layer (or per-feature basis when you are using complex styles). You can even make a raster layer transparent (or any part of it), in order to enhance visibility of your crucial data.

Simultaneous Data/Map Browsing

Look at your data and map at the same time. Zoom in and filter the map and the data view follows. Scroll around and select features in the data set and they are hilighted on the map. Visualize your data your way. Don't want to give up screen space for the data view? That's fine, just drag it shut, and then open it when you need it again.


Got addresses? Cartographica is the easiest way to put them in their place. WIth Bing™ Geocoding support and our improved internal Geocoder, you have your choice of easy-to-configure online services, or geocoding using your own data (especially useful if you want to look at historical information). Cartographica will take addresses from lists in text files, tables in databases, or even your Macintosh Address Book.

GPS Support

If you need to load up field data from a variety of GPS devices, go no further than the File menu. Using the GPS import modules tested over the last three years in our free LoadMyTracks software, we can import waypoints, routes, and tracks directly from hundreds of devices, including those from: Garmin®, Magellan®, Lowrance®, Sony®, and others. And, if your device isn't directly supported, it can import the data using GPX files (the standard for GPS information).

Direct Database Access

Is your source data stored in a database? Cartographica can load data directly using ODBC (the standard for database exchange) and geocode it, join it to existing table data based on keys, or just import it as points with X and Y or latitude and longitude. No more multi-step processes and complex multi-program importing.

Intelligent Projection Management

There's a lot of data available out there, but often each layer is coded with a coordinate reference system that is specific to its producer's own needs. Cartographica understands that, but doesn't let that get in the way of making the data easy to use. Although you can change coordinate systems in existing layers, we'll be just as happy to do the conversions behind the scenes (for raster as well as vector data) in order to make sure your layers match up. And, if we don't have the projection or CRS built-in, you can add it yourself from another map or by importing a CRS in Proj4 or WKT format.
