Map Making Support / Making maps uploadable by sub-section
« on: July 21, 2010, 09:08:35 AM »
I own some garmin maps, and have made some small, personal maps. I am in the process of making  a larger, state map, but after I create it and load it into mapsource, I want to be able to select subsections (by county) of the map to load onto my device (like I can select states with the Garmin City Navigator maps).

How do I do this?

Sorry if this has been discussed elsewhere, my search was unsuccessful.

Does anyone know the proper procedure to ensure high-resolution water data is downloaded from the new National Map Viewer?

I can't seem to make the old NHD server work for me. But the new National Map Viewer allows one to download Hydrography data, I just don't know how this data compares to the area, flowline, and waterbody data one gets by following the map-making tutorial.

Thanks in advance.

Map Making Support / GNIS Process doesn't import everything
« on: October 16, 2008, 09:06:52 AM »

I have been using your GNIS Process to get POI's for washington State. However, in comparing what is put into the gnis shapefile, and what is available from the USGS website, I am seeing that a large number of POI's aren't making it into the shapefile.

Is there somewhere you have documented exactly what the GNIS process does in downloading, and processing the data? I would like to try to troubleshoot and see what is happening.

Map Making Support / Oceans

As I am working on my map of Washington, I have found that the Puget Sound is not showing up as ocean. Do you know any tricks to specify an area of the map as ocean? The NHD data only includes ground water features.

Map Making Support / Another noob question - about cgpsmapper
« on: October 05, 2008, 02:19:12 PM »
As I watch cgpsmapper work, I see occasionally a message saying:

"Successfully imported: 2723 not imported: 234"

What is the importance of the "not imported" bit? Are these possibly duplicates? I know that I probably have duplicate flow line data from downloading the same sub-basin in two requests. Other than that, I can't figure out why some things would not be imported.

Map Making Support / National Park Trails
« on: October 05, 2008, 01:49:30 PM »
I am having difficulty finding any trails data for national parks. I am working on building a topo of WA state, and am particularly interested in finding trails data for Olympic National Park. But I am having no luck. Any ideas anyone?

Map Making Support / ArcGrid or GeoTiff - which is better?
« on: October 04, 2008, 07:54:04 PM »
When processing elevation data in Global Mapper, is one filetype better than the other? Is processing ArcGrid faster than GeoTiff? Does using one require less memory to process? Does one produce smaller files?

Thanks again.

Map Making Support / Question about Datum
« on: October 04, 2008, 12:04:18 PM »
I am working on combing and compiling the data for a WA state map. I have been following the tutorial religiously, but I can't figure out the Datum.

What datum does all of this data use? I have assumed, that since it is coming straight from the source, that it is using NAD83, is that correct? If not, then I would have to tell my GPSr what datum to use, correct?


Map Making Support / WA Topo map
« on: September 28, 2008, 09:47:01 PM »
I'm a noob at this, but have decided to try to follow Oz's excellent tutorial and make a topo of WA state. I have begun downloading and processing all the NED files. Hopefully will be finished by the end of the week and can get started on the NHD files.

How long does it usually take to start getting NHD files after the request is submitted? I submitted some requests 2 days ago and have yet to hear anything.
