Scroll Prev Top Next More

MPSuperShape can import shapes from an external file. Do this by selecting the MPSuperShape: Import option on the MapPoint Tools menu. MPSuperShape will then display a standard file selection dialog box. Select the required input file. The file extension specifies the file format. Press OK to import the shapes.


MPSuperShape can import the following file formats:


Google Earth / Keyhole 'KML' Files

GML Files

ESRI 'SHP' Shape Files

MapInfo 'MIF' Files



The KML and GML import options only support geographic longitude,latitude coordinates using the WGS84 geoid - ie. the same as MapPoint.


The MapInfo MIF and ESRI Shapefile (SHP) import options support different projections and coordinate systems.
