A full-featured and affordable vector drawing application especially for (though by no means limited to) Cartography work. Designed for incredible ease-of-use, it allows you to draw directly with features such as roads, rivers, coastlines, buildings, symbols and contours. Every feature supports GIS-type attribute information that can be referenced by text labels, and everything can be directly drawn and positioned simply by dragging and dropping. Powerful and extensive text features give you a fine degree of control over labeling.
