Description
Software and documentation for Map-Master released by Ashton-Tate in 1987. Version 6.01 was for IBM PCs and 100% compatible microcomputers. The original box contains six 5.25" disks, Map-Master User's Manual, Map-Master Quick Reference Guide, Map-Master Boundry [sic] and Statistics File Catalog, Master Graphics Installation Update, and a keyboard template.
Ashton-Tate purchased the MAP-MASTER software from Decision Resources in Westport, Connecticut in 1986. This software allowed users to quickly and easily create full-color custom maps, by either importing data from spreadsheets or database files, entering data manually, or by using one of MAP-MASTER's statistical libraries. In 1988 this software sold for $395 (about $840 in 2019 dollars).
