View Full Version : Mapping-Tools.com releases GridImp v2.0

06-22-2005, 10:21 PM
Mapping-Tools.com is pleased to announce Version 2.0 of their GridImp product for MapPoint.

GridImp is designed to plot gridded data in MapPoint - a type of data that cannot normally be plotted in MapPoint. Gridded data can be indexed in various coordinate systems and text file formats.

Version 2.0 adds the ability to define custom linear input coordinate systems, and to use UK Ordnance Survey Grid References. Grid References are correctly plotted in both MapPoint 2002 & 2004 - circumventing the grid reference bug in the European Edition of MapPoint 2002.


Another new feature is the capability to create plots on existing maps. This allows it to be used with other tools and add-ins such as Single State Mapper (also available from Mapping-Tools.com).

Full details, examples, and a free trial can be found at: http://www.mapping-tools.com/gridimp/index.shtml
