Hi Mike,

I have 2 questions for the new GM version.
1. Does the new version v.11 support the grib format?
2. Is it possible to upgrade the GM from the v.9 directly to v.11?

Best regards and thanks in advance.

    Can you provide a sample of the grib format that you are referring to? It might already be supported but under a different name.

    Normally you would need to purchase a full-priced v11 license since there is not a direct upgrade path from v9 to v11, but there is a trick that you can use to get a discount to just the price of the v9-v10 upgrade plus the v10-v11 upgrade (this saves you $121 US). To get this discount, purchase a full v11 license from the Purchase page at http://www.globalmapper.com/ and enter a coupon code of GLOB-HVFF-VNIN.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Mike,
    thanks for the upgrade trick.

    For this format i am talking about http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GRIB
    I cannot find a sample file in my computer right now, but i found the following link that has a number of GRIB files.

    Thanks again for your support.

    Ah, this format is ringing a bell now as it has been requested before. I will bump it up in priority and hopefully get something added before the next point release. I'll let you know when something is available.

    Thanks,
