-A complex tool to archive data describing a cave, cave system or karst areas as well as a cave map drawing tool. Compatible with Survex. Developed by Slovakian cavers Martin Budaj and Stacho Mudrak (but available in English). FREE to download from  http://​therion.speleo.sk . The format is human readable plain text (excluding 3D models). The objects of map drawing are abstract, so they can be visualised in different symbol sets or after export to GIS one may add to objects attributes used in a particular GIS project. The interface is available in the following languages: Czech, German, Greek, English [UK/US], Spanish, French, Italian, Portugese [BR/PT], Russian, Slovak ​and Albanian so far. The maps, atlases, list of continuations and others could be exported from one project in enumerated languages (if typed), too.+A complex tool to archive data describing a cave, cave system or karst areas as well as a cave map drawing tool with automatic round-tripping (morfing) after loop closures.

 One of the big advantages of therion is that a structure of map drawings is fully independent of survey data. It means that you can draw partial maps as you are exploring and surveying the cave. Once you have a more clear idea of the structure of the cave system, you can easily redefine structure of maps to better fit the cave. You can split the cave into layers and selectively display them, or generate an interactive atlas. You can define multiple independent "​views"​ of map structure suitable One of the big advantages of therion is that a structure of map drawings is fully independent of survey data.
