Hi, I am trying to export polygons for use with DeLorme Topo USA 7. The following format is what it can read in:

BEGIN POLY
43.547316,-100.132312
43.553109,-100.109940
43.546929,-100.117930
43.547316,-100.132312,Label1
END
BEGIN POLY
43.509078,-100.134442
43.479466,-100.138704
43.481140,-100.099287
43.488479,-100.114379
43.509078,-100.134442,Label2
END
BEGIN POLY
43.567014,-100.144386
43.561606,-100.144563
43.561478,-100.130536
43.568044,-100.130004
43.567014,-100.144386,Label3
END

I can get the ASCII export to get everything but the labels in the proper order. Is there any way you can add support to add the label to the end of the last coordinate?

Thanks,
Justin

    Justin,

    That shouldn't be a problem. Do you know what versions of Delorme can input that file format and do you know what Delorme calls this format?

    Thanks,

    Thanks, the program is DeLorme Topo USA 7.0. This is the type of file it creates (as a .txt) when you export to a text file. You can also import this same style of file. It doesn't really have a name, the software usually uses "Draw" files (.an1).

    Let me know if you need anything else.

    Justin,

    I have completed adding support for this export format to Global Mapper. If you aren't already using the v10 beta, you first need to download and install it from Global Mapper - Download/Purchase. I have placed a new build at http://www.globalmapper.com/global_mapper10.zip with the change for you to try. Simply download that file and extract the contents into your v10.xx beta installation folder to give it a try. The new export option is under the File->Export Vector Data menu.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

    Thanks,
