  We have an excellent experience with QWIKMap program
  developed and distributed by ESL Environmental Sciences Ltd.,

  It cost around $900 and runs on IBM PC, preferably 386 (co-processor recommend

  Data are entered in the form of a dBase III+, IV, FoxPro etc.
  file. Each dot (or any other chosen or created symbol) on the
  map represents one record. You can access the data base from the
  map and check a record for each dot, etc., etc. Very user-friendly and ergonom
ic program. Good reason for switching from
  MacIntosh to IBM.
