This program makes it easy to build Jyotish maps in the time interval from 1625 to 2200.

In the development of the program used data, texts and algorithms from books:

  • Maharshi Parashara "Brhat-Parashara-Chora-Shastram" Volume 1 and 2.
  • James Bracha "Ancient Indian Astrology for Modern Astrologers", Moscow, Kogelet, 2001.

When calculating the program uses the Swiss Ephemeris.

  • You can adjust the Birth Card and other cards with one click on any parameter (time, date and coordinates). And the map will be recounted.
  • The program allows you to easily (search by mask) to select the coordinates of a city from 1087 cities of the CIS. In addition, you can find out how time has changed (Time Zone, Time Zone) in this city depending on the date. On the territory of the former USSR, time has changed several times.
  • The program builds Fractional cards (Chora, Drekkana, ... Shashtiamsha, total 19 pieces).
  • It is possible to rectify the time of birth on the basis of several important life events.
  • In addition, using the mouse pointer you can get information about any object (Planet, House, Sign, Nakshatra, etc.). His constant qualities and properties that he gets in this position. This applies not only to Rashi Kundali, but also on all fractional cards.

Polkhovatel himself transfers the planets, arudhas and signs (the signs are transferred only to the Lagna) to the houses he needs. And in this way it can itself simulate a map. You can also select Fonts to display the planets and everything else. And also there are a lot of sliders and flags moving which can achieve the desired location of the map elements. Each slider has a tooltip. You can also save and load the created settings to a file (Pop-up menu on the "Drawing Map" tab).

The program has a directory containing the geographical coordinates of 1087 cities, as well as changes in the order of time and time zones produced in the former USSR from 1917 to 1992.

The coordinates of extended cities were calculated by the geographical center, which can explain the discrepancy within a few minutes compared with other sources.
