JPR files for OSGB maps

Postby TheSnake » Wed Jul 19, 2006 9:44 pm

Hi Scott,

Following on from a message posted somewhere else in this forum, re: JPR files for OSGB maps.

Could you please confirm if the following JPR file is good, or is missing some commands, or possibly another reason why it doesn't give me the correct parameters when I open it in MapManager!?

I get all the calibration points correctly positioned but a Calibration Type of 'Known Points Skewed'.

My Test.jpg is 16bit compressed 900x900 pixels

pr=Transverse Mercator
pp=-2.0
p1=49.0
p2=.9996012717

nm=Test

Setting the Projection to either Known Points, or Transverse Mercator should work. Known Points usually works best.

I must have an old version of MapManager then, as .JPRs with 'Transverse Mercator' do not load in correctly.

What is the latest version of MapManager and is there a separate link to it anywhere, or do I have to download and run the 'full installation'?

I think the easiest is to run a full installation. If you don't want to install the PDA files, simply remove them from the Install Tool (if you run Palm - I have no idea how it works with PPC)
