  • Hello Valerio,
    no, in QV you cann`t use *.point Files for a map calibration.
    It is the first time, that i hear about these files. Could you please tell us to which programm these files belong to?
    Perhaps someone has than an idea to help you.


  • Thank you for your answer!

    The .points files are produced by a georeferencing program called "QGIS"

    Do you know?

    thank you

    Best Regards

  • Sure, but I would not call QGIS a "georeferencing program". ;)

    Try this:

    1. Rename your *.points file to *.gcp and try to import the map again into QV, additionally you will have to specify the projection.

    2. If that does not work, load the map in QGIS, right-click it in the layer manager and select "save as...", QGIS will then create a geotiff from your map which you can load in QV.
