       thuban [thuban-session-file]


       This  manual  page documents briefly the thuban command.  This manual page was written for
       the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.

       thuban is an interactiv geographic data viewer.  Thuban can read geographic  data  in  the
       shapefile format. To control the visual appearance of a layer you have to select the layer
       in the session window of thuban. Afterwards you can  change  the  layers  color  with  the

       You  can  load  the  layers  table with the Layer-table-menu. Afterwards you can query the
       table for feature selection. You can also load new tables with the Table-menu and  make  a
       table join to the current layer table.

       Maps can be printed or exported to the PS-format by Map/print.

       All  changes  can  be  saved  in  a thuban session file. If a thuban session file has been
       indicated on command line it will be loaded by thuban. If no thuban session file has  been
       given thuban starts with a new session.
