I am becoming familiar with the MAPTAB 4.0 version of World Cultures. In
the tutorial and guide (Journal of Comparative and Cross-Cultural
Research, Vol. 7, No. 2, September 1993) it says this version introduces
graphics-based maps in addition to the old character based maps. There is
access to data, codebooks, and bibliography and allows some integration of
the three.

It is not very user friendly. I do a lot of troubleshooting with it as I
choose the cultures I want to compare and on what criteria and then
mapping the coordinates with the zoom function.
