ajacobs Posted August 15, 2006 Share Posted August 15, 2006 I am wondering if there is a program that can do the following: Take a scanned map and some how establish a couple of reference points either from the coordants on the map itself or from establishing know points on the map with waypoints from the gpsr. This would then establish the scale of the map as well known reference points. From there you could plot other points and them upload them to your gpsr. The maps themselves would not be uploaded to the GPSr just worked with on the computer. More specifically for my purposes being a park ranger I want to take some maps from various sources (things like mountain biking, bouldering and bootleg skiing maps) and using reference points find other points they depict. I also want to be able to use an uncoventionally scaled yet highly accurate map and use track logs from my gps to plot some social trails that are forming on the scanned image. I am probally not being very clear in explaing myself but any help would be apprieciated. Quote Link to comment
