Format Examples

 

Example: Import an ESRI ADF File and Apply Style and Hillshading

In this example we import an ESRI ADF format file that provides a raster terrain elevation data set for the region near Yosemite National Park in the United States.   The data set imports as an image.  We then use Style to style the image and to provide hillshading.

Example: Import BIL and Combine 3 Bands

A very technical example in which we import a BIL file that produces three images, each using one band from the BIL.  We then create an image that uses the three bands for R, G and B.

Example: Import CTG Grid Cell File and Style

A companion topic to the Example: Import GIRAS vector LULC File and Style topic.  We import a CTG LULC Grid Cell file containing raster data showing land use and land cover and then we use Style to provide a more understandable display.

Example: Import DDF SDTS DEM Raster File

We import a raster data terrain elevation surface from USGS SDTS format using DDF files.

Example: Import DDF SDTS DLG Vector File

We import a vector data roads drawing from USGS SDTS format using DDF files.   We use the Select dialog to quickly reduce the data to line objects only, excluding points and area objects.

Example: Import E00 and Rearrange

An intricate example showing how to use Manifold tools to adapt legacy data imported from E00 format into useful, modern form.

Example: Import or Link ECW

Step by step examples showing how to link an image from an ECW file into a project and also how to import an image from an ECW file into a project.

Example: Import GIRAS vector LULC File and Style

A companion topic to the Example: Import CTG Grid Cell File and Style topic.   We import a USGS land use file in GIRAS vector format and then we use Style to provide a more understandable display.

Example: Import Multiple MapInfo TAB Images

MapInfo TAB format can store images as well as vector drawings.  This example shows how multiple images at the same time can be imported from TAB formt.
