Problem Importing GeoTiff into Topcon Magnet Software

Posted by Chuck Smith on Sep 29, 2016 11:21 am

We're having problems importing GeoTiff's and/or Tiff's with World files into Topcon's Magnet software as background images running on a Topcon FC-5000 controller.

​The GeoTiff's were exported out of ArcMap with the correct datum reference and the controller is also set up with the same/correct projection/datum.

They appear to be scaled correctly but end up in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.

​The GeoTiff's import fine in AutoCAD C3D.

​Any insight will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

​Chuck

Check your coordinate system setting.  Is it World Coordinates or Local State Plane Coordinates?
