Io Cartography

  Calculate and display as well as print. Ideal for study and teaching the following aspects of "astrocartography".
   
 

Mundane Setting

  This setting enables the program to display the classical “astrocartography” lines. These lines include the Ascendant and Descendant Lines jointly called the Rising Lines. Also included are the Meridian Lines.
   
 

Meridian Lines

  The Meridian Lines include the Mid Heaven and the I.C. Lines. The Mid Heaven Lines are indicated by an upward pointing triangle at the top of the map. The I.C. Lines are indicated by an downward pointing triangle at the bottom of the map. The lines are perpendicular to the equator.
   
 

Rising Lines

  The Rising Lines are comprised of the Ascendant and Descendant Lines. These lines are a locus of points where the planet in question is at the horizon, east horizon for ascending, west horizon for descending. If the Line is an Ascendant Line the triangle points to the East; if the line is a Descendant Line the triangle points to the west. These lines are not perpendicular to the equator in most cases.
   
 

In Mundo

  This setting will include the planetary ecliptic latitude as a factor. In Mundo Lines are the real true lines as they reference the physical planet not the planet’s position on the ecliptic plane.
   
 

Trine Lines

  The Trine Lines, which include the I.C. , the M.C., the Ascendant, and Descendant, are twice as numerous as the classic Meridian lines and Rising lines. The Trine lines are considered to be much less powerful than the classic Meridian lines and Rising lines. The program displays these lines by using thinner lines than the classic lines.
   
 

Square Lines

  The Square Lines, represent an unusual case. Any Square Rising line that you may see actually represents 2 lines. A Line is one square’s ascendent line but also the other square’s descendant line. So they are twice as powerful as the trine lines. This principal also applies to the Square Meridian lines. A Line is one square’s M.C. line but also the other square’s I.C. line. Consequently no indication that a line is ascendant or descendant is necessary as the line represents both aspects. They are therefore twice as powerful as trine lines. These lines are considered to have a discordant or stressful influence. They are considered to be almost as powerful as the classic lines.
   
 

Local Space

  Local Space Lines are great circle circles around the globe originating usually at the place of birth or place of domicile. If you were to follow the planet from your origin eventually you would find a place on the surface of the Earth where that planet would be directly overhead. That path is the great circle route and represents potential adventures corresponding to the nature of the planet. these lines converge on the exact oppossite point on the globe.
   
 

Birth Locale

  If the Local Space button is selected this button will place the origin of the loal space lines at the birthplace as defined by the longitude and latitude in the chart record. Any other locals space lines with another origin will be erased.
   
 

Crosshair Button

  You may choose your own local space location with this option. There is even an active longitude and longitude display to give you precise coordinates.
