3rd Party Map Import (cost US$50)

All Memory-Map software applications are Free. However, this FREE software is limited to working only with maps published in the Memory-Map proprietary formats. If you have access to maps in other formats or want to scan and calibrate paper/digital images, you will require the "Import Maps" license extension. Below is a summary of the map formats available under this option.

  • GeoTiff standard digital map format.
  • TIFF images supported with TFW or TAB and Datum files.
  • JPG images with calibration information in JGW files
  • Scan and calibrate paper maps or use none geo-referenced digital images.
  • ECW format is not supported directly but is easily converted into the GeoTiff format by using the free utility ER Viewer from www.intergraph.com  
  • Other supported formats include; Maptech’s BSB, NDI’s BSB and Softchart’s Nos/Geo

Professional Features Upgrade (cost US$125)

Our professional-level licence enables a number of advanced features. The upgrade assumes you have purchased some Memory-Map Maps and therefore have the Standard Licence (Formally known as Discoverer Licence). If that is not already in place, the full cost of the Pro Licence, which includes all lessor licences is US$225

  • Overlay data import/export

  • The standard product can import and export using the Memory-Map and Maptech proprietary formats, GPx and CSV text format. The professional version adds ESRI Shapefile format (an industry standard for distributing geographic data).
  • In ESRI Shapefile import, there is an option for automatically joining track segments. This is useful if your GPS data consists of a large number of separate polyline segments in the Shapefile.
  • Import NMEA 0183 data logs (RMC, and WPL sentences).
