Quote from: jolly47roger on September 28, 2018, 07:37:15 AMIf only the PDFs were GeoReferenced, then it would be easy.The workflow would be:1. Download a PDF2. Identify coordinate points for georeferencing (see below)3. Georeference the PDF by matching points to coordinates4. Crop the collar to just leave the map detail5. Cut the map into 1Mpixel pieces to make a KMZ for Google Earth and/or a Garmin Custom Map.If you can match enough highway bends/junctions, lakes or other landmarks then this technique with MAPC2MAPC may work :MAPC2MAPC (with GDAL) will do the rest.But I declare an interest as the author of MAPC2MAPC!

For some reason I'm insane enough to enjoy it.If you have a PDF that you would like in your garmin as a custom map, I would be happy to try to convert it for you, or even talk you through the process I use if you would like to learn.Jeff
Quote from: MojaveMan on October 06, 2018, 08:08:57 AMStep 3 is to consider the size of the map file and tile the map. We want to wait to do this until you are happy with the map as it is. So, can you take a peek in Google Earth and make sure you like it?Once you are happy, we need to cut the big map file into little tiles that the garmin can use. I have written a script to do this, but there are many online tools that will do it too...
