Re: [OpenMap Users] ATOC files in OpenMap

Hi Emily,

I'm not sure why OpenMap wouldn't load an A.TOC file, but you can do
some poking around with the com.bbn.openmap.layer.rpf.RpfTocHandler
class, running it directly on the parent RPF directory:

java -cp <path-to-openmap.jar>
com.bbn.openmap.layer.rpf.RpfTocHandler <path-to-RPF-dir-parent-of-

It should print out a bunch of information about the entries it finds
in there. I'd check the chart codes and scales to see if they are
undefined or ambiguous.

Actually, now that I think about it, is there an error displayed when
reading the file, or are you just not seeing data displayed on the map?

Hope this helps,
