Eclipse Software EmapWin (Version 3.80)

Emapwin Overview

Emapwin simulate the solar eclipse from 13000BC to 16999AD.

(The above figure is Japanese version)

The Emapwin Eclipse simulation software has the following main features.

1) Display of the Eclipse Map
The Emapwin calculates and draws the eclipse lines on the map.
2) Display of the table of the Central line
The Emapwin makes a table indicates the northern, central and southern
limit of the umbra by the parameter of the longitude. So it is easy to
draw the line on the map.
3) Display of the Local Circumstance
The Emapwin calculate the local circumstance such as maximum magnitude,
time , altitude of the sun and direction at the given place. The Emapwin
also simulate and display the eclipse at the given place.
4) Display of the Sky at Max. Magnitude
The Emapwin display the Sky view at maximum magnitude if that point is in
the area of the total eclipse.
5) Moon Limb correction for 2nd/3rd contact time
The Emapwin calculates moon limb adjustment base on LRO/NASA satellite data.

The improved point of Version 3.70 from the Version 3.80

1) Fixed incorrect display of year
Until now, only the yyyymm.kml file was provided for the central line of
the eclipse, but the yyyymm_earth.kml file will also be provided for the
entire eclipse map for all eclipses.
If you want to display the eclipse graph on the globe like below,
please download and use [Google Earth Pro].

2) Delta T value is revised
The delat T (2023 to 2024) was revised based on current value.

The Emapwin calculates based on the Bessel elements attached with the
software.The Bessel elements are for the eclipses from 13000BC to 16999AD.
