OK, first trick is getting the .jpg into a format that MapCal can read. It can use ,bmp and I THINK .png and maybe one more? I use .bmp.
There are ways to set the PATH variable in Windows to make commands all work
from within a working directory. If you are going to do a lot of them, you'll want to do that. But for now, let's just do it the quick and dirty way. It is quick, but it is dirty because if you don't clean up after yourself, you'll lose things and leave garbage in your program directories. So, keep track of what you put where.
You have the directories for the programs, make a directory for charts, and make a directory called 2111. That's the chart number. We are going to use this name a lot of times, so we want it short, but unique. This directory is where we will keep a copy of each of the items we make for the chart. So, you'll end up with a 2111.bmp, 2111.hdr, 2111.kap, etc.
So, first one. Copy the chart into that directory and name it 2111.jpg (lower case jpg).
Next, the dirty part, instead of working on the jpg there, copy it into the directory where you have ImageMagik.
Now, start > run > cmd.exe
This will bring up a command window. You'll be in here a lot.
CD to the directory for ImageMagick. If you then type
and press enter, you should see all the ImageMagick programs and also the 2111.jpg. If you see this, you are in the right place.
To convert it to a bmp, type in
convert 2111.jpg 2111.bmp
and press enter
Now do a dir again and you should see the .bmp
Copy 2111.bmp that to your 2111 directory.
Next, we want to calibrate the chart. Start MapCal and open the chart 2111\2111.bmp.
See if you can calibrate the chart using the directions in the help or on the website. If not, ask questions in here.
The hints are:
Calibrate 3 points towards the corners.
Make sure to draw the border around the usable part of the chart.
ABSOLUTELY, once you are done, take the option that says "Save calibration". It will not ask you where to save it. It will just automatically save it to a file called CHARTCAL.DIR.
Once you are done, copy CHARTCAL.DIR to the 2111 directory and also post it here so I can see it.
