Hi,

I have GM 14. just to know if you included the SDAT grid file format in further version of GM (or even mine ?) ? For info, it's included in gdal V1.7 and beyond.
[h=2]SDAT -- SAGA GIS Binary Grid File Format[/h](starting with GDAL 1.7.0)
The driver supports both reading and writing (including create, delete, and copy) SAGA GIS binary grids. SAGA binary grid datasets are made of an ASCII header (.SGRD) and a binary data (.SDAT) file with a common basename. The .SDAT file should be selected to access the dataset.
The driver supports reading the following SAGA datatypes (in brackets the corresponding GDAL types): BIT (GDT_Byte), BYTE_UNSIGNED (GDT_Byte), BYTE (GDT_Byte), SHORTINT_UNSIGNED (GDT_UInt16), SHORTINT (GDT_Int16), INTEGER_UNSIGNED (GDT_UInt32), INTEGER (GDT_Int32), FLOAT (GDT_Float32) and DOUBLE (GDT_Float64).
The driver supports writing the following SAGA datatypes: BYTE_UNSIGNED (GDT_Byte), SHORTINT_UNSIGNED (GDT_UInt16), SHORTINT (GDT_Int16), INTEGER_UNSIGNED (GDT_UInt32), INTEGER (GDT_Int32), FLOAT (GDT_Float32) and DOUBLE (GDT_Float64).
Currently the driver does not support zFactors other than 1 and reading SAGA grids which are written TOPTOBOTTOM.
NOTE: Implemented as gdal/frmts/saga/sagadataset.cpp.

    Dear Bob,

    Juste an update on the subject, as I'm getting started with GM 19.

    Still no plan to have SGDR/SDAT files included in the format supported ? I didn't find it here : Supported Formats and Data Types in Global Mapper

    Many thanks for any info,
    Robin.

    Hello,

    The SAGA GIS Binary Grid File format is not supported as of Global Mapper 19, and is not in the plan for Global Mapper 20.
