I get low memory/no memory warnings, then complete shutdown of Global Mapper during the combing data tutorial part 8. Everything appeared to be fine during the adding of all the files required and export vector data, export polish mp. I set the polish mp export options, click ok it begins to build my 100k files/maps. It is during this process I get the low memory/no memory warnings. I enter thru the warnings and finally I get an out of memory warning and global mapper shuts down completely. Note: The state is PA, and I am using a pentium 4 w/ 4gb ram. please help

thanks jim
Map Making Support / Processing Contours w/ Global Mapper
February 11, 2009, 08:00:08 AM
I am working on a complete map of PA.  I have completed all of Tutorial # 1 and lines 1 thru 15 of the Global Mapper inst. On Tutorial # 2. All is good until I call the files contours and click OK. After 15 minutes my computer stops processing. On the two small pop-up that are showing, the first (Finding Contour Segments) is 55%, and the other (Generating Contours) is 2% complete.

Thanks for the help,

Map Making Support / Creating .img Files
February 09, 2009, 07:37:09 AM
I am having problems converting .mp files to Garmin compatible .img files. I ran the five steps in the tutorial several times and ended up with this message:

Cannot find import; DLL may be missing, corrupt, or wrong version
File "SENDG.DLL", error 126

Note: Because I was having so many issues early in the tutorials, I decreased the size from a full Pennsylvania map to a one county map. I plan to complete two state maps, when all my issues are resolved.

Thanks Jim

-s <srid>  Set the SRID field. If not specified it defaults to -1.
      (-d|a|c|p) These are mutually exclusive options:
  -d  Drops the table, then recreates it and populates
        it with current shape file data.
  -a  Appends shape file into current table, must be
       exactly the same table schema.
  -c  Creates a new table and populates it, this is the
       default if you do not specify any options.
  -p  Prepare mode, only creates the table.
  -g  <geometry_column> Specify the name of the geometry column
       (mostly useful in append mode).

  -k  Keep postgresql identifiers case.
  -i  Use int4 type for all integer dbf fields.
  -I  Create a GiST index on the geometry column.
  -S  Generate simple geometries instead of MULTI geometries.
  -w  Use wkt format (for postgis-0.x support - drops M - drifts coordinates).
  -W <encoding> Specify the character encoding of Shape's
        attribute column. (default : "ASCII")

(Using Global Mapping)
I have finished Parts 1 and 2 with minimum issues. I've completed most of Part 3, including receiving the e-mails back from, extracted the zip files to nhd, combined all of the shapefiles together with GM. WHAT DO I DO NEXT. DO I GO TO FINAL DATA PREPARATIONS WITH GM OR DO I GO BACK TO PUTTING THE DATA IN A DATABASE AND PROCESSING THE DATA WITH PostGIS.  Thanks, Jim
