Hello!

 

I hope someone could help me this!

 

Could AutoCAD Map displays USGS maps as black and white?

 

Thank you,

Dennis

Grey display doesn't look very good. I tried that! Is there anyway?

  • try to save USGS maps as Geotiff onto your hard disk
  • extract the Worldfile with GeoTiffExaminer
  • convert in B&W with Irfanview, and save all with CCITT compression
  • embed back the original Worldfile with GeoTiffExaminer
  • _MAPIINSERT the georeferenced mono map
