How can I convert this high precision map that I used with my previous tracking software, the map info is stored in .dat format?
We can easily convert over data files that have stored map information. We will use Global Mapper 12 to load the files into our editable area, set our projection, and then export as a usable Geotiff. We will then convert that Geotiff into .Maplib Format.
The following steps outline the procedure:
1. Start Global Mapper 12 and select (Open all files in a Data Tree).
2. Set Options for your .Dat File
3. Map is Now Loaded Into Global Mapper.
5. Export Geotiff
6. Select Output Options
8. Select your .tif Image
9. New Map Settings
10. Set Projection Settings
11.Save Your MapLib
12. Select Your New Map
