Am I correct in assuming that the .map files for the 2008 NATMAP edition that can be downloaded from the Oziexplorer site means there is no need to do any calibrations on these new digital maps?

I have these loaded but the Oziexplorer site has been down since early this morning and so cannot go there to look at the help

Yes calibration files are there ready to go. There is no need to calibrate them yourself. Just make sure you get the correct natmap series calibration files. i.e. There have been several versions of the product ie dont use 2005 Natmap calibration files with 2008 maps as obviously some image files may have changed.

General Note: Most ecw map images already contain calibration data anyway so you can just use the "File - import map image - ecw map" function is OziExplorer (OE) to create *.map files. Only draw back of this method is that the corner markers (used by OE to define the limits of the actual map excluding white border) may not be correctly positioned. If the maps do have a border you will have to manually move each corner which may or may not be a laborous process dependig on how many maps are involved.

Oziexplorer website works for me..... in case you still can't access the files, the direct links are as follows:

installed on c: drive
Loading from DVD

Yes you are correct in your assumption with the calibration.
