Load an mdb file

PrimeribfanPrimeribfan Global Mapper UserPosts: 6
I have a file with an mdb extension that contains bathymetry contours, that is normally loaded into a GIS program. I would like to load into GM, but despite trying a large number of options in the "select overlay type" menu (eg Microsoft Access Database), it will not load.

I have also opened this file in MS Access, and it just seems to show gibberish (see below)

Anyone able to help? I am able to share the file if it helps

    I should add that I searched the forum for mdb references, and they all seemed quite old, and not relevant,

    What version of Global Mapper are you using?

    That file looks like a GeoMedia Access Warehouse.  Try choosing that for the format when you load it into Global Mapper.
