Atlas Atlas aims to produce and display high quality charts of the world
for users of FlightGear, an open source flight simulator. This is achieved through two
main parts: The map creator and the Atlas viewer. The map creator can also be used as a
stand alone program that produces beautiful bitmaps. The Atlas viewing application can be
used for browsing your maps but can also connect directly to FlightGear and display your
aircrafts current location on a moving map display.
