Gridpoint Atlas®

Gridpoint Atlas® 4.0 is the exciting software developed by Captain Bruce Cathie and Rod Maupin. This software provides the ability to plot a map and overlay the World Grid® onto it, then view that overlay in Google Earth.

The software makes use of the almost fifty years of research that Cathie has done into the Earth’s World Grid® system, its associated harmonics, and the UFO enigma, and the twenty-one years of computer work done by Rod Maupin.

This is a one-of-a-kind product available to the public.

The software includes five map libraries that give worldwide coverage. You can print a base map, overlay the World Grid, then send the overlay to Google Earth for viewing.

We hope that this software provides a vehicle for bringing this hidden science to the public. It is only through the education and changing of people’s awareness that this world will ever change into something far greater than it currently is. Quite frankly, this hidden science has been kept from the public for centuries. Far too long in our opinion. This is a real travesty. We know that if this knowledge was fully exploited it would bring on enormous change in the world. We look forward to the day when this happens.


The user of this software is assumed to have a basic knowledge of maps, and the concepts of latitude and longitude. While the software’s Help and manual both contain a glossary, it is not meant to be a textbook for teaching map reading or theory. In addition, it is assumed that the user will have some knowledge of Captain Bruce Cathie’s work, either through his many books or lectures on the subject. The program Help and manual is not meant to teach harmonic theory, the structure of the world energy grid, or relate the years of research of Captain Cathie. However, it does accurately document the software and its functionality.

Gridpoint Atlas® 4.0 makes heavy use of both plane and spherical trigonometry in performing its calculations. While having knowledge of trigonometry can be helpful in understanding how the software works, a user is not required to know anything beyond the definitions of degrees, minutes, and seconds (these definitions are provided in the Glossary). Knowledge of physics, calculus, or any higher level mathematics is not required, nor is it utilized in the program.

System Requirements

Gridpoint Atlas® 4.0 has the following minimum hardware requirements:

  • IBM-compatible PC equipped with an Intel Pentium processor

The Gridpoint Atlas® map database was gathered from two different sources. The first source is the “ESRI Data and Maps, 2002 Edition” CDs, where selected maps of the United States were taken.

The second source is NIMA’s “Vector Map Level 0” product, which was formerly called “Digital Chart of the World” These map files were in the Vector Product Format used by the U.S. Military, and were converted to the ESRI Shapefile format for use in this product.
