limap: A pack­age for type­set­ting In­for­ma­tion Maps

The In­for­ma­tion Map­ping® method pro­vides a method­ol­ogy for struc­tur­ing and pre­sent­ing in­for­ma­tion. It claims to be use­ful for read­ers who are more con­cerned about find­ing the right in­for­ma­tion than read­ing the doc­u­ment as a whole. Thus short, highly struc­tured, and con­text free pieces of in­for­ma­tion are used.

limap pro­vides a LaTeX style and a LaTeX class. The style con­tains def­i­ni­tions to type­set maps and blocks ac­cord­ing to the In­for­ma­tion Map­ping® method. The class pro­vides all def­i­ni­tions to type­set a whole doc­u­ment.

Sam­ples

A few sam­ple files are pro­vided which con­tain dummy doc­u­ments type­set with limap. They are con­tained in the sub-di­rec­tory sam­ples. You can have a look at the doc­u­men­ta­tion of limap it­self to see an­other ex­am­ple.

In­stal­la­tion

Most prob­a­bly limap is al­ready in­cluded in your TeX dis­tri­bu­tion. Thus con­sult the doc­u­men­ta­tion of your TeX dis­tri­bu­tion first to in­stall or up­date this pack­age.

You can in­stall the pack­age man­u­ally. Ap­ply the fol­low­ing steps:

  • Run LaTeX on limap.ins
    latex limap.ins
  • Move the files limap.cls and limap.sty into a di­rec­tory read by LaTeX.
