In 2003 CSISS supported an effort to produce an interactive flow mapping program. The result is an updated Windows-based version of a program originally designed and programmed by Waldo Tobler in 1987. Tobler’s original application was updated by David Jones using Microsoft Visual Basic .Net and SVG (Scaleable Vector Graphics) for map rendering. It requires as input locational coordinates and a table of interaction between places. Additional input may include place names for the location coordinates and a file of boundary coordinates (the background map). The user has several menu options for producing a map. The program allows for the production of a total movement map shown by volume-scaled bands, net movement given by scaled arrows, or simultaneous two-way moves
