Hi there,

Had a bit of an issue trying to load a 16 tiff of imagery that shows up in ESRI ARC just fine, but for whatever reason when I tried opening it in Global Mapper to simply shows up as a grey stroke with a white perimeter around it.
When I kicked it down to an 8 bit tiff it loaded into Global Mapper just fine.

Any thoughts??

    in esri was/is there much of a difference brtween the 8 or 16 bit tiff ?
    Could it be that the tiff you are working with only has the 8 bit data, I am just curious as I have not run into this.

    A usert name of Canadian_Bacon - - ?? How does that compare to the U. S. pork products like that from Jimmy Dean?
