Is there a way to import an Arc View TIN into Global Mapper? I have a series of files provided in .adf format, but I can't find a way to read them.

    Do you perhaps have an Arc Binary Grid with a w001001.adf file? If so that is what you would load and Global Mapper would automatically pull in the remaining files as needed.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

    Thanks,

    As a follow up to this question, the adf format appears to be able to save a TIN surface instead of a Gridded surface. Is it possible for GM to read TIN version of the adf format?? I can read a Gridded one with no problem, but it isn't importing the ones I have which are a TIN.

    Kevin,

    There isn't currently any way to load the adf TIN format in Global Mapper as Esri does not document the format and to my knowledge no one has decoded it.

    Thanks,
