i have a tin file with breaks and points created in esri 3d analyst. it is a directory of files one xml 9 adf files. when i try in import it i get a list of possible file types i have tryed all the ones that i think would fit. do i need to get this converted to a grid first? or can i import this directly.

    Global Mapper cannot directly load the ESRI TIN format as no one has reverse-engineered the format yet and ESRI has not published it, so you would need to first convert it to a grid or export it to a standard format, like perhaps a Shapefile, before you could load it.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

    Thanks,

    Mike
