General Usage Instructions

The GeoRefImg module contains several commands - as documented.

You can start them via the command line.

  • Start it by typing the GEOREFIMG command.
  • GeoRefImg prompts to select objects (existing images) and then perform the repositioning and scaling controlled by the World files (TFW, JGW, PGW, GFW, BPW, WLD...).
  • World files are searched in the folders of the original raster file.
  • Use full paths (REFPATHTYPE=2).
  • The additional command WORLDOUT can create a new world file from an existing positioned image.
