This map generator takes longitude/latitude pairs as input and plots them on a Mercator projection map along with land/sea and political boundaries. The map bounds will be about 10 percent larger than the bounds of the entered data points. As an example, the generator is loaded with default values that yield a map of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, generated by supplying the longitude and latitude values of Cape-area towns: Woods Hole, New Bedford, Nantucket, Chatham and Provincetown. A set of radio buttons allows users to determine map extent, select how to plot points, turn topography on or off, place labels, turn political boundaries on or off, and plot rivers. A high-quality PostScript version of the map is generated for downloading, and the Generic Mapping Tools (GMT) generator code (a Perl script) can also be downloaded.
