Map Making Support / Re: Make Topo Map Part 2 - Stuck
« on: June 07, 2020, 04:50:01 AM »
Thank You OZ.

Taken directly from your tutorial, it appears I am supposed to edit two lines of the batch file:

Combine All The Contours Together

1. First we will combine all the contours into one file.  We have created a batch file that you can run and it will use FWTools to combine the contours. Download the bat file here and extract it.
2. Edit the bat file in Notepad (right click and click "Edit")
3. On the first line change the folder to be the folder where you have all the folders containing the contour lines folders.
4. On the second line set your location to the FWTools bin folder (the default for 2.4.7 on a 64-bit OS is already set)
5. Save the file
6. Now double click on the bat file to combine all the contours together. Note: Currently FWTools will crash if the file gets over 4gb; if this occurs you must split your contours into two separate folders and combine each half of the state separately.  For reference: for Arizona the file was only 3gb.
7. A new file has been created called "mergedcontours.shp"

I did eventually get this to work with only editing one line (the first).

Map Making Support / Make Topo Map Part 2 - Stuck

I am followng the multi-step Topo Map Tutorials and am currently stcuk on Part 2.

All countour data files are downloaded and unzipped in their own directory.

Under Combine all Countours, step 4, I donot understand what I am supposed to do here. The 'second line' in the batch file reads 'cd %contourfolder%'. How am I supposed to format this?

Step 4 suggest this line is already fomratted for the BIN folder on 64-bit OS, and I see that address in lines 5 and 6, followed by 'ogr2ogr' (not 'ogr2ogr.exe').

Not able to get any further yet.

BTW, where will the new 'mergecounturs.shp' file mentioned in step 7 be located if/when it works? THe tutorial does not specify this.

Thank You!

What part of the US will you be visiting?

Have you tried messaging the map creator via the Northwest Trails homepage?

The GPX files I just tested are encrypted or corrupted. They will not work as they are.

They all seem to contain

"Mac OSX"

Are you using the Garmin cable that came with the GPSr?

You can't just change the extension to convert a .gdb to .gpx. Both files are identical.

2014 UT TRIP V2.gdb opens ok for me with GPSMapEdit using Win8 x64 - But be aware, the file has a lot of straight lines connecting each of your track logs.

Interesting. I have the same issue, dozens of Adventures I know exists are not displayed during a general search. Must be a Garmin database issue.

Also, try installing 'My Trails' from this website and restart 'BaseCamp' and see if your Utah maps show up after that.

I assume you are referring to 'BaseCamp' when you type 'Basemap'. If the installer runs each time you open it, you are opening the installer each time, not the program.

Correct, you can not import or drag-n-drop *.img files directly into BaseCamp.

You MUST select a destination (Folder or List) in the LIBRARY before Import is allowed. If you have any external devices selected, IMPORT is disabled.
