Calibrating IGN 1:25000 maps of France

Postby goon » Tue Apr 25, 2006 12:40 pm

Hi,
I'm struggling to calibrate a scan of a paper map (I've never attempted it before). I've added an attachment of the cover, which also states 'GPS compatible'. Could anyone tell me the information I need to put in to the Map Manager before I add my known points?

Thanks for any help!

Many thanks Phil. French is not my forte (!) but I've saved the pages and will have a go at calibrating more accurately.

Cheers,
Gareth Evans

Hi Phil,
No need to modify the page. My wife helped me translate your directions, and we had great success calibrating our maps.

Thanks for your efforts,
Gareth
