I would like to suggest that this be modified to direct people to MapC2MapC which can open a WCI file directly and save it immediately as a KAP file. No hassles, quick and easy. If the file needs correction or cropping MapC2MapC does it quickly and even uses GoogleEarth to check calibration points. I've used MapC2MapC to convert my huge library of WCI files to kaps and it works a treat.
The program can be downloaded at: MapC2MapC Download
I use MapC2MapC almost daily as a quick and dirty alternative to the Autodesk Map frankenroutine they have spliced together for creating geo referenced images
. No one told me it was using GE to check my data! My liability muscle is not relaxed with this news....
When MapC2MapC can handle creating polygonal collars, or plys, save chart data in extended BSB
format and display it all so that even the nearly blind can see it...WINNER!
MC2MC is fantastic for creating KMLs from kaps, by the way.
WCI format is something not mentioned around here very often.
