Tools | DCW Mounter

Digital Chart of the World files in the format developed by PhD Associates are directly supported in MicroCAM for Windows. The DCW CDROM that PhD Associates distributes has the world divided into 5 degree by 5 degree cells (except near the South Pole). Each cells data files are combined on the CDROM in one zipped file. The DCW Mounter lets you select the cell(s) you are interested in for copying and unzipping onto your hard drive. Since the same filenames are used for each cell, you can either overwrite your working cell every time you mount a new cell or specify that the cells be stored in their own subdirectory.

More information on the DCW files and the mounting procedure can be found under Digital Chart of the World (DCW) ASCII File Format.
