Question regarding compiled .img files
« on: March 08, 2016, 11:52:39 AM »
I just compiled my first map and noticed that the compiler created five .img files. At the beginning an error occurred -  ERROR E017: cannot parse coordinates on Final_0000_0000. I let it continue to see how it would turn out. I was expecting six .img files as there were six individual Final_.mp files to compile.
Although I see in the mpcompile_log.txt the following:

Tue 03/08/2016 11:22:24.47 Completed cgpsmapper on Final_0000_0000
Tue 03/08/2016 11:22:24.47 Completed cgpsmapper on Final_0000_0001
Tue 03/08/2016 11:22:24.47 Completed cgpsmapper on Final_0000_0002
Tue 03/08/2016 11:22:24.47 Completed cgpsmapper on Final_0001_0000
Tue 03/08/2016 11:22:24.47 Completed cgpsmapper on Final_0001_0001
Tue 03/08/2016 11:22:24.47 Completed cgpsmapper on Final_0001_0002

If the data was compiled correctly without error should  there would be a .img file for each Final_xxx_xxx files? I also see no .idx files

The idx files are created depending on which version of cgpsmapper you have. There created for the higher versions that allow searching.

Now for the coordinates issue, it sounds like a bad data point somewhere in that file. If you have gpsmapedit try to open the MP file and see if it throws an error. Also, you can open the MP files in a text editor such as notepad++ and just look to see if summering stands out.

Thanks Dan
I'll open the MP file and have a look.
