Last winter, I switched over from SeaClear to OpenCPN
I did create my own maps, using MobAC, which delivers PNG files and coordinates.
Combining the PNG file with coordinates, I did create WCI files, using the SeaClear MapCal application.
These MapCal WCI-files were then converted to KAP-files.
This whole process was working fine, until I did try to use files which do require a higher color-depth (Google-satellite-256 mapsource).
Then I did discover that MapCal creates WCI files, only using an 8-bit color depth
. Creating atlases, based on Google-satellite data, however requires 32-bit color-depth.
Based on that, I do have the following questions:
- Is there anyone, who knows, if MapCal can create WCI-files with 32-bit color depth??
- Or is there another conversion utility, which can combine PNG files with coordinates, and has the possibility of exporting KAP-files??
- Does anyone know, or have a procedure, where MobAC exports KAP-files directly?
My PNG-files are created with MobAC, but that has no direct KAP-export capacity.
Thanks on forehand.
