Map Making Support / Multiple maps
« on: January 17, 2009, 03:21:48 PM »
I have now all the data for MA,ME,NH, and VT. I guess I will add RI to get all the New England states.
What is the best way to release these maps?

I could build a single map but that would create a huge file.

I can create multiple maps but what is the best way to do it so I can switch from one map to another on my GPS. Too bad our ancestors did not design straight lines for state borders!

Any ideas on what could cause that error? I am trying to build a combined map (MA/VT/NH) and I get those errors in the middle of the map. I am missing 4 or 5 rectangles. All the other MP files seem good.

Map Making Support / Vermont gnis file
« on: January 09, 2009, 03:58:45 PM »
I build the GNIS file for Vermont with the topo_process but when I try to load the gnis.shp file into GM I get:

Shape file does not contain projection information. Please select the projection/datum ...

Any idea?

Map Making Support / cgpsmapper error doing Maine
« on: January 01, 2009, 05:05:35 AM »
I am getting this error while generating the .img file using the topo_process:

Error E024: Top layer detail level too high to cover entire map - decrease detail level of the less detailed layer (use higher level #)

Do you know what is wrong? I cannot find the problem immediately.

Map Making Support / ME topo map
« on: August 18, 2008, 04:01:54 AM »
I am making progress on my Maine topo map but all the data files are too big to load in Global Mapper (ran out of memory). I could easily split the map North/South but what is the best way to do it? Should I overlap the two parts? Any other comments/tricks I could use.

Map Making Support / USGS server down?
« on: August 14, 2008, 02:30:27 AM »
It looks like the USGS server is down. I have been trying to download the elevation data for Maine, but now it returns an error for each URL I send. It worked OK a couple of days ago.

Map Making Support / transcode.bat
« on: August 10, 2008, 05:39:24 PM »
I am not really good with DOS bat script files, but I do not think transcode.bat does what the documentation says. I think the delims= parameter should be "delims=," to match the example in the tutorial.

Anyway, even with the change above, I process only the first MP file. I think I am going to rewrite it using a real shell script. I am not a big .bat guru.

Map Making Support / Water problem?
« on: August 04, 2008, 05:26:28 PM »
As I said yesterday, I am working on a MA topo map. Everything is fine except for the water. My waterbody (lakes, ponds, etc) are not colored. I just get the contours. I just regenerated my waterbody.shp file just to make sure I did not make any mistake.
Any ideas?
