Malcolm,The basic answer in not really. The indepth answer is yes if you take the image files supplied on the CD and then georeference them into OziExplorer (can be done but in my opion not worth the effort). Also the product is being de-released (not longer produced) and we received the last batches of this product the other day. So if you want one now is the time to get it as it will not ba avialable again after stocks are at zero. We use the Auslig product and the Hema GDT products these are fully georeferenced and will plug straight into OziExplorer without any additional work. Hope this helps David

Thanks for your reply. When you say that the product is being de-released, which one doyou mean. The OziExplorer or the Hema Atlas?

You mentioned that you could geo-reference the images on the Hema Atlas. Is this complicated, and where do i find out how to do it. I bought the Atlas because only a few weeks ago ads for the OziEx. mentioned that it could be used in conjunction with the Atlas.

Not looking good Mal - no response to my Q on the user group site so I get the impresion few people have bothered with this CD (assuming it is in a usable format anyway).
Cheers Greg

Malcolm,I have not actually do it with the HEMA Atlas product however the procedure is basically to Load and Calibrate the Maps the maps into OziExplorer. In OziExplorer's file menu there is an option to load and calibrate the maps. Using this you are prompted to select a file/map to load. Find the map file you wish to reference in OziExplorer and then you will see it on the screen. The procedure to goe-reference is to find a minimun of three (3) known points on the map and put in the Lat/Long for these points (Usually you will find grid lines on a map with Lat/Long's) make the three positions near as possible to the edges of the map. After you enter the three positions you need to setup the maps edges using the corner marker function on the setup tab - setup the corners of the map image and you are basically done.Any map can be imported this way including scanned images of paper maps etc.hope this helps David.

Mal - Based on what I have read else where I find it unlikely that adds for OE would suggest that the Hema "Atlas" product could be used with OE. The maps were not created for this purpose and as such would be a somewhat (?) inaccurate. Despite this, and as David suggests, it would be possible to use them but don’t expect good results. The Hema product that has been created with OE in mind is the Great Desert Tracks CD. This comes with calibration files and a basic version of OE ready to go. I suspect you have confused the two products. I shall post a request on the ozi user group site and see if anyone has gone to the trouble of calibrating the "atlas" Cd and will notify you here at a later date.
