The Icon Bar: News and features: EarthData available as free download.

EarthData available as free download.

Posted by fwibbler on 20:07, 29/9/2003 | , ,
James Bursa (part of the Netsurf web browser team) has announced that his software 'EarthData' is now available for free download from his website.

EarthData is a geographical database which contains a variety of data on every country of the world accessible via a simple menu-based interface.
It can also present and manipulate data in a variety of ways.

Some features include;-

  • Many categories of up-to-date data for each country.
  • Graphing of data within countries.
  • Overall data for the world.
  • Location maps showing the position of each country.
  • Draw files of each country's national flag.
  • Each category of data can be disabled to simplify the menus.
  • Selection of countries based on a simple filter, for example 'Area is greater than 1,000,000kmĀ²'.
EarthData can now be downloaded from James Bursas website

<grumble> Doesn't work on Aemulor. :(

Are the transparent menus for real or are they a pretty Photodesk effect?

No, the transparent menus are just in the screenshot, so that I could fit more in.

I mean't to ask you about those.
Thought they were some sort of transparency module or something.
