    The "jgw" file is just the world file that describes the mapping of the pixel coordinates of a JPG image to some coordinate system. Just load the JPG file and Global Mapper will automatically load and use the JGW file if needed. Note that the JGW file doesn't contain projection information, so if you don't also have a PRJ file you will still be asked for the projection associated with the coordinates in the JGW file.
