Mayan calendar.

Overview

Chac is a complete, accurate Maya calendar application. It can find Maya calendar dates based on today's date, any date, a Long Count, Tzolk'in, Haab', Calendar Round, Julian day number, distance number, long reckoning , seatings in the cycle of God K, and convert between the Julian and Gregorian calendars. Chac can find the next heliacal or cosmical rising or setting of Venus and the visibility of the current inscription or date.

You can use a large range of correlation constants, any one of the six possible moon numbers, astronomical or historical dating, any of the four Year Bearer systems and appearance of the new moon or the disappearance of the waning moon. Chac can display a Long Count with head or symbolic glyphs. Chac draws the results as a complete Maya calendar inscription.

An inscription with its preferences can be saved in Chac’s file format or it can be saved as graphics in TIFF, PDF, JPG, PNG, JP2, or BMP formats. An inscription can also be copied to the clipboard where it will be posted as PDF and TIFF.

This software is rather pointless now! It's 2014 and we're all still here. ;-)

The image of the priest offering a victim's heart is too unsettling and unnecessary.

I am a great fan of both Chac and MacMaya. My Mac died and I had to downgrade to the more affordable pc world. I would be thrilled to have a pc version or iphone app for both Chac and MacMaya.

For a sane discussion of the alleged "Mayan Prophecies" (but not of this app) see: http://www.skepdic.com/maya.html

I just got this app mailed.... ad I was watching some others calendars... I'm pretty confused, because mr. Ian Lungold rom www.mayanmajix.com uses Calleman's Book for his speeches, and this one ends in 28. October 2011, not 2012.... And 2nd, I was using the apple maya calender widget. http://www.apple.com/downloads/dashboard/information/mayacalendar.html And a second calendar from the learning lab of mayanmajix: http://www.xzone.com.au/tzolkin/getcalendar.php And those both were showing me the same date today, Example, in both was 3 Etz'nab today. And this Chac Calendar is the onlyone showing 9 Eb being the Day today.... I still haven't find which is right, but till now, is 2 softwares(apple widget and xzone) against 1 (chac) If you find out anything about which one is right, please let me know by commenting back :)

i believe the Maya calendar ends in 2012 with the end of the world. I just saw something on the History Channel about it.

Odd little app; it is interesting to look at and certainly makes you happy our calendar is a bit easier to manage. Runs fine on my Intel Mac Mini.

Not of much use unless you are an expert of Mayan or a medieval-minded modern-day Maya. But five stars for the historical value and the great fun! :-)
