DIVA-GIS is a free computer program for mapping and geographic data analysis (a geographic information system (GIS). With DIVA-GIS you can make maps of the world, or of a very small area, using, for example, state boundaries, rivers, a satellite image, and the locations of sites where an animal species was observed. We also provide free spatial data for the whole world that you can use in DIVA-GIS or other programs.

dlgv32 Pro is a limited-feature version of commercial software called Global
Mapper which was created from the original dlgv32 source code. Improved to address changes in data standards and to better meet customer
