Subject: first on-line calculator of Mayan Tzolkin calendar system
The Tzolkin Calculator is an interactive “cosmic calculator” that can inform a person of their Mayan birthday glyph. The Tzolkin Calculator converts standard (Gregorian) calendar time to Tzolkin (Mayan) calendar time glyphs (based on DreamSpell conversions). Choose a date, and then calculate to get the ancient equivalent. The Tzolkin Calculator is designed to be embeddable into any website.
This Tzolkin Calculator was the first on-line calculator of the Mayan Tzolkin calendar system (now there are many), and was hosted on Tzolkin related websites all around the world.
I worked with Arcane (who provided the Mayan glyphs), and then I completed overall design and programming of the astronomical calculations (all in Flash and ActionScript).
This Tzolkin Calculator was the first on-line calculator of the Mayan Tzolkin calendar system. The Tzolkin Calculator widget was downloaded hundreds of times and hosted on associated websites all around the world.
I’ve made the original Flash/ActionScript source code freely available.
