Hello,
I got a TIF-file (showing a map) and a corresponding TFW-World file.

How can I load this map into GlobalMapper?
Opening the *.TIF GlobalMapper does not recognize any belonging *.TWF...

Regards,
WMW

    WMW,

    Global Mapper should automatically get the coordinate information from the TFW file when you load the TIF file. Note however that TFW file do NOT have information about what projection the coordinates in the TFW file are in, so you will still have to select the projection for the coordinates in the TFW file if you want the lat/lon readout of your TIF file to be correct.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

    Thanks,

    Mike
