Tcl/tk commands for manipulating geographic data

Tkgeomap is a set of packages that add commands to the TCL/Tk scripting language for reading, manipulating, and displaying geographic data. TCL batch commands perform basic geography calculations, apply projections, and create named places and line sets. Tk commands draw maps in a canvas item or geomap widgets. Subcommands and configuration options choose data, projection, and viewing area on displayed maps. Tkgeomap uses several input formats described in the man pages. The tkgeomap Web site includes scripts and source code for reading other formats.
