All the timewave-related software mentioned on this website was developed by Peter Meyer during 1987-1999. He also wrote software for conversion of dates in the Maya Calendar to dates in Western calendars (and vice-versa), useful for studying the Western equivalent of

The Mayan Calendrics program is provided on the USB flash drive. For a screenshot and further information click here.

On 32-bit PCs running Windows XP the Mayan Calendrics program may be run by locating the executable file mc8e.exe in the folder /maya/exe on the USB flash drive, and double-clicking on the program icon. On 64-bit PCs and PCs running later versions of Windows the program can only be run by using DOSBox.

In my on-going research into connections between the Mayan Calendar and world events I have found Peter Meyer's Mayan Calendrics software to be extremely valuable. I particularly like the wide variety of features that he's included. In addition to the basic capacity to convert Gregorian dates to Maya and Maya Long Count dates to Gregorian, the software includes a "Days since" feature, and the capacity to add and subtract numbers in order to identify dates that pertain to cycles of time. I have found these features to be extremely useful. For its accuracy and ease of use I highly recommend this software.
