Map Making Support / Re: setting so Pacific ocean is always visible
« on: January 24, 2010, 06:22:24 PM »
Ok, I see 2 possibles, but it appears possibly editing the dictionary is best. If this is the current dictionary:
Level3RGN80=00000000000000000001110000000111000000010000000000000000001111111111111110000000000This line gets changed?

Hmm, The ocean and main inland water bodies where added to the borders as part of my base.
So I have:[POLYGON]
Type=0x28 [b]Change to 1x28[/b]
Label=Puget Sound

Map Making Support / setting so Pacific ocean is always visible

Good Morning, the problem I had with my last map was when one was standing next to the pacific ocean if one zoomed out several times the ocean would disappear. I was making my map base today with the dictionary and I can not see the water until level 0 any way I can make it visible at the last level?

Good Morning, I just processed my nhd data. I watched my folder as the topo process created water body.shp and so forth. All went well until it combined everything, when it was done what was left once more was just prj files. Thoughts?
error log:
Shapefile type: PolygonZ
Postgis type: MULTIPOLYGON[4]

Any reason to think that postgis 8.4 will be a problem?
I just downloaded and installed FW tools, Postgresql 8.4 installed postgis data base and made a transport run, doing so separately.
Extract and download: OK no problems (copied files to separate location so I would not have to do it again)
Combine files: OK all lines result, copied again
postgis: resulted in just a transportation.prj file only

I seem to re-call this from before
here is the error:
Shapefile type: Arc
Postgis type: MULTILINESTRING[2]

here is the settings.inc:
fwtools=C:\Program Files\FWTools2.4.6\bin
postgis=C:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\8.4\bin
cgpsmapper=C:\Program Files\cgpsmapper.exe

Good evening, after working fall thru early winter with my map I have decided to re-build from scratch. I found queer little things that are not up to snuff. I have started gathering the data already. Question is: I see no reference to a newer version other than a query. Is there one?

Tsnake: Thats because it needs vb6 dependencies (stupid language if you can't include them easily); download from here: http://www.gpsfiledepot.com/tools/vbrun60sp6.exe

if that doesn't fix it that means that is in a different set of files and I'll post it.
I finally got my new computer and am going to finish my project. I had the 339 run-time error and have this file to install but its not clear as to where is should be installed. When asked for a location what do you suggest?

I have one more (most likely stupid) question. I have some trail shape files which when opened in mapedit keeps trying to open with with bounds of N: 1566718.8750 S: 1482609.2500 E: 382455.56250 and W: 280379. 90625
How does one convert them to a usable .mp file?

Thanks for the clarification makes more sense to me now. I am looking at one more thing. I have a gnis shape file for the state, but the web site no longer has the tutorial on how to manually convert a gnis file only the topo process method, which of course only works with the internet. How would I convert it, I did not copy the manual method? Thanks-Marc

Map Making Support / a few questions
« on: April 05, 2009, 07:59:55 AM »
Hi, I am getting ready to finally finish my project. But have a few questions.
on a recent trip to Eastern Washington I had 2 versions of the map. One with the zoom settings as per the header from this site (23, 22, 20, 18, 17)  the other with some different (24, 22, 20, 18, 16, 15)
both had pluses and minuses. But what I am looking for is the contours (20 foot)  to show up at something about one more level out from 800. At 800 in some areas one could not plan far enough ahead. Any thoughts?
And finally when is there just to much information. I found some shape files which have obscure information such as every bridge in the state and a few other weird ones. Thoughts.

Open pgAdmin III and delete all the nhd_... tables (delete/drop).

I didn't think it required metadata.  If you get a chance can you post exactly what it said or tell me how I could get the quad.
Oz, Sorry I have been gone. I will run it again with out deleting the data base so I can re-create the error. But it is something which pops up on the lower left hand corner which has no effect on the operation finishing the process.
I did something to make the patch which ended up in poor results. I opened the shape files in Global Mapper> exported vector .mp file > choose the box to use existing format > used a existing .mp file with zoom and dictionary the rest of the map is> created the mp file. It will not run on cgpsmapper to convert to >IMG file. cgpsmapper opens and spends its time ( I waited a hour twice) just reading the dictionary. Never to change. Soo do Not Do As I have Done.

I had a very interesting thing happen which I would like to resolve. I noticed looking at the water base map I had created a error in 1 quad. I re-downloaded the quad, unzipped the file and ran topo process (newest version) on the lower left corner it said there was a error: that there was no meta data (the folder I assume) but it continued to run. At the end of the run it created a file from the last run I had done. Absolutely nothing to do with the files in the folder I ran it from. I deleted all those files  and unzipped it again. Opened the shape file to make sure (again) it was the correct quad. And ran topo again. The exact same thing happened, no meta and final was a area 200 miles away.
I am assuming I need to clear a data base to rectify this. Question is which one?

That is how I did it. I am just going to slowly edit all the areas. I was wondering more on how one might approach it in the future. Although this isn't all that bad.
