    Small Area Plotting Sheet Generator
    From: Tony S
    Date: 1998 Jan 06, 19:50 EST

    To all:
    Appropos of plotting sheet discussions, there is a wonderful program
    created by Wes Murfin who is one of the members of the Silicon Sea
    "working group".
    This harkens back to August 1996 when Wes placed it into the Ronin
    archives for the benefit of Silicon Sea voyage followers.  The
    program functions under Windows (3.1 or 95), creating scaled plotting
    sheets from 0d to 55d Lat, in 1d increments, which may be sent to
    Printer, File or Clip Board.  It includes the typical PS compass rose
    in 1d gradations. The output is quite similar to USPS small area
    plotting sheets (CLS XX) but automatically takes care of the need for
    longitude scaling.
    Unfortunately, the Ronin archives seem to have disappeared but I'm
    willing to send it on by e-mail to anyone who requests.  It is
    POSPLOT.ZIP of 108K (which expands to 265K) and e-mail transmits at
    about 150K via UUencode base64.
    Please respond directly to my e-mail address, _not_ the list.

                                much more.  Sorry, still a dos program
                                but runnable under Windows.
