MapInfo Tab NZMG

MapInfo will not read Coordinate system Projection information from NZMG (EPSG:27200) Tab file exported from Globalmapper v12.00 32bit. Globalmapper does not recognise EPSG:27200 and therefore does not create the correct coordinate description for Mapinfo. hope you can help.

    Andrew,

    We just recently added the 27200 EPSG code as a built-in to Global Mapper so it would be recognized. You first need to download and install the v12.01 32-bit release from http://www.globalmapper.com/global_mapper12_setup.exe , then download the latest build from http://www.globalmapper.com/global_mapper12.zip and extract into your Global Mapper v12 install folder to update to the latest build with 27200 support.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

    Thanks,

    Hi Mike,
    Thanks for your reply,
    Tried new build which now has EPSG 27200 thanks.
    Issue seems to be confined to NZMG Tab exports. NZTM is correct.
    I have attached MapInfoTabExport.zipTAB files from GlobalMapper and MapInfo.
    I have also attached screen shots from MapInfo of issue.
    MapInfoNZMG_uncorrect.bmp shows Lat/Long coordinate system defintion from GlobalMapper TAB export.
    MapInfoNZMG_uncorrect.bmp shows what it should read.

    Andrew,

    So far I'm unable to see what is different between the Global Mapper-generated file and what MapInfo is able to handle. The projection, datum, and ellipsoid codes seem to be the same between them. If you generate MapInfo MIF/MID rather than TAB/MAP files from MapInfo and Global Mapper is the MapInfo one still the only one that MapInfo likes?

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Have attached 2 mif files. One from GM and the other generated from MapInfo.MIF.zip. The MapInfo file shows correct Coordinate information, GM version shows Lat/Long (This could be a default if MapInfo does not recognize Coordinate system).
    MIF.zip 43.1K

    Thanks for the file. I was able to see the difference in those and update the GM export to save the extra parameters (which really should be implied just by using NZMG, but I guess not) so hopefully MapInfo will recognize the projection. I have placed a new build at http://www.globalmapper.com/global_mapper12.zip with the change for you to try. Simply download that file and extract the contents into your existing v12.xx installation folder to give it a try. If you are using the 64-bit v12 version there is a new build at http://www.globalmapper.com/global_mapper12_64bit.zip .

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

    Thanks,
