Hello,
I am new here, and also to anything related to non-paper USMGRS type maps. I am getting ready to go back over to Iraq and this time I would like to take my Delorme GPS with me. I also have the XMap 6 pro software and was told that if I can find the appropriate maps in either geotiff, MrSid or geo-referenced image (.prj) files, I can use them with my GPS.

The problem is, I have no idea how to find or use these files. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!
Thanks!

Wow, three days and not a bite... Maybe I came to the wrong place?

The reality is that Iraq is probably one of the hardest countries to get any modern or recent commercial mapping data for, from a commercial source. The potential market for people using the English language is also very low - so the chances of someone here having a useful lead is also low.
