These controls provide standard file management tools.

Ctrl+O

Import…

Permits the import of maps or data in other formats. The following formats are supported: OpenOrienteering Mapper (.omap, .xmap), OCD version 6 to 11 (.ocd), geospatial vector data (formats supported by GDAL).

Export as…

Permits the export of the currently opened map to another format. The following formats are supported: PDF, Image (raster graphics), geospatial vector data (formats supported by GDAL).

For raster images, Mapper may additionally create world files. A world file is a small text file which defines the image’s georeferencing relative to the map’s projected coordinate reference system. Note that these files contain only six numerical parameters. They do not contain an identification of the projection, coordinate system or datum they refer to. The filename is derived from the image’s filename, but with a modified filename extension usually ending with letter ‘w’.

For geospatial vector data, the actual GDAL driver is selected by the extension (e.g. “.dxf”) given to the filename.


 Print

Ctrl+P

Shows the print dialog to print the currently opened map.

Opens the settings dialog. (On OS X, the settings are in the usual place instead.)
