Map Background

Map Background (version 6.6 April 2013) is an interactive desktop application used to create background images for the web (i.e. static web maps) utilising coastline (e.g. IDL, GSHHS or GA), elevation (e.g. GTOPO30 or GADEM9S) and location spatial data sets. Features include simple updating of the map backgrounds with interactive placement of location name labels, and automatic generation of hotlinks for clickable maps. Map Background is an easy to learn application, written entirely in IDL, and has been used to create and maintain the Bureau of Meteorology Radar Images map backgrounds and layers.
