Having a problem about getting a .map file

Hi!

I’ve been doing a micro sitting project, already completed climate analysis and also got contour lines of a field from Google Earth. I need exactly to place wind turbins in the field and see array losses. How should I make it happen, I think I need .map extension file to make that happen, am I right? How can I get it? B/c I don’t have any. I thought my contour lines file would be .map extension, but it is not.

Thanks in advance.

Sincerely,
Furkan

Re: Having a problem about getting a .map file

If you wish to see the effect of the terrain, you need to use MapEditor to make a map.  It facilitates download of SRTM elevation data for most of the world, and can also import various data formats from e.g. GlobalMapper.  Note you will also need to digitize roughness-change contours, which are not typically given.  You can try e.g. the CORINE dataset, or use the Google-Earth image  (overlaid) to guide you in digitizing roughness-change contours.

Re: Having a problem about getting a .map file

I managed to download the map of a field where I wanna set it, by generating contour, I got contour lines with 10 meters distance in GlobalMapper, saved as .map file. After all of those, I tried to open it in Map Editor, and I got an error which I couldn’t understand, below I show you what it’s given;

“Could not open C:\Users.... .Reasons:
MyMap.OpenMapFromFile:
MyMap.MapReaderBody:Line#0, File Record#1
FileCom.GetData:
FileCom.GetData_Kernel:after reading 0 data items
Invalid floating point operation “

By the way I couldn’t able to upload some images here showing my stages to make it easier to understand, Is it possible to send you via e-mail if you need any more details about how it went wrong.

I appreciate,

Best regards,
Furkan

Hi Furkan,
are you sure that the GlobalMapper output is a WAsP .map file?

Re: Having a problem about getting a .map file

I’ve just saved it as .map by adding “.map” to its name since I couldn’t find .map type while saving. On the other hand, I also tried to export it but again couldn’t find .map extension. What should I choose over there?

Hi Furkan, you would need to look at the GlobalMapper documentation.
