You do this by creating custom TYP files that describe the new custom feature appearance, and define the feature ID associated with them.    [Documentation]    (March 4th, 2015) Here some links about custom maps authoring using GPSMap Edit (many thanks to their authors!I wouldn’t say that it’s an easy process, but it can be done, and gives you a lot of freedom to customize the map appearance. ): The official description of Polish format is given by the .To use the manual offline, unzip the downloaded file, then double-click on the Help_file from Windows Explorer to start using the manual. This web site does not work properly without Java Script. The following list outlines the currently supported data formats in Global Mapper.If you would like context-sensitive help from Global Mapper to use the help files that you have downloaded rather than the online user's manual, create a Help subdirectory under the directory in which you installed Global Mapper (by default this will be C:\Program Files\Global Mapper8) and unzip the contents of the zip file to that directory. It makes maps with navigation for Garmin GPS mapping devices from ESRI shapefiles (GIS to GPS conversion), Google Earth KML and KMZ files, geotiff raster images, Ozi Explorer . Import and export data from your spatial databases.For simple custom maps, you can just work with a map editor, and don’t really need to worry about the mp code.But if you want to take advantage of all of cgpsmapper’s features, you’ll really need to learn at least something about working directly in the mp format, no matter how painful.
mp is a text-only format, and it’s possible to create mp files using just a simple text editor; sample mp files are included in the program directory.I wouldn’t create maps directly in this format with a text editor unless it only has a few features, but there are ways to modify map characteristics and feature definitions easily if you get familiar with the mp format.It’s also possible to get maps compiled for free with many of the features only available in the shareware versions.Oher limitations of the free version include: Stan Kozicki, the author of cgpsmapper, also sells a number of commercial version that add progressively more features as you pay more money.The cheapest shareware version is , and adds direct support for shapefiles as input data, some indexing support and a few other features.And as a bonus, you won’t get those annoying “map created by” tags on every map segment.
