Marco is a collection of common surveyor calculations intended to assist people in the field, where booting up a laptop to just figure out a couple answers would take far too long. It is designed to be a powerful calculator that is easy to use, and to supplement your desktop computing environment.

Marco will run on any device that runs Palm OS, such as Palm Pilots. These little devices are ideal platforms for use in the field. They require absolutely no boot time, are easily transportable, have a long battery life (especially the black & white ones), and are very reliable. The processor is easily able to handle accurate calculations, and the screen size means that the program can prompt for information in a way that is useful to people that are unfamiliar with the program. Palm devices are also becoming quite affordable and are being integrated with cell phones and watches. With all of these reasons, Palm OS devices are perfect for the job.

Take a look at the current version or peek at the manual for explanations of how Marco works and what it looks like. Test it out to see if you like it. If you intend on using it beyond the seven day trial period, you'll need to register Marco to continue using the software. Don't worry - the code is generated on the registration page now (no fee required), but I have also deemed this software to be "end of life" so you won't be getting any support.

This 'telephone' has too many shortcomings to be seriously considered as a means of communication. The device is inherently of no value to us.
