Key Codes

Cartographica 1.7 uses the same keys as all previous versions of Cartographica. However, 1.7 is restricted to users who had active maintenance as of December 1, 2022.

Compatibility with prior versions of Cartographica

We've gone to great lengths to ensure compatibility both forward and backwards between versions of Cartographica. Map sets that are written with version 1.7.0 should be readable with versions 1.7.0 back through 1.5.5.

If you are upgrading from 1.4 or prior versions of Cartographica, you should also check out the Release Notes for 1.5.5.
