I have a collection of IMG files with their TBD file for Garmin Mapsource, which I'd like to use as vectors in Ortelius/Illustrator.

The ASTER GDEM contour vectors for Indonesia are from here: http://maps.three15.org/node/39

I have a demo copy of Cartographica installed on Mac.

Can I convert the TBD or individual IMG files into vector elevation contours I can use in Illustrator or Ortelius (shapefiles)?

Regards,

Pete

Great ... I have used GPSMapEdit on a PC to convert to Polish MP files then Ptxt2Shp to convert to shapefiles which import into Cartographica demo then export as AI! It works in a roundabout sort of fashion!

OK I admit defeat! I got an AI file from the six tiles I wanted, but ended up with all my polygons flattened on one layer and non-contiguous (cannot be filled). So a partial success with the programs I used. I've put out a request for some professional help in the Business section!

Regards,

Pete
