anAtlas's primary goal is to help you quickly locate places on Earth. anAtlas will retrieve search results from Internet search engines as well as local databases. As the results are gathered, they are listed and shown on a map of the world.

A Hub location allows you to set a base for range calculations. anAtlas also supports dropping and pasting of your own location data for plotting.
