*** Installing Precision Mapping onto your Hard Drive ***
You should install Precision Mapping into a directory
named PMAP30/. Even if it is version 3.5, tell it to
use a folder named PMAP30. That's the only way the
current WinAPRS version (beta 2.2.2) will read it.
[NOTE: I wrote this readme file 12/20/98. Newer versions of WinAPRS may or may not not require
installing into PMAP30.]
Copy (from the CD rom) the folders
and all of their contents to your C:/Pmap30/ folder
Make a folder named C:/Pmap30/states/ and place the
ZPX files for the state(s) you want into that folder.
The normal installation should also give you Pmap30/
subfolders named -
The files for each individual state can be copied
from the CD onto the hard drive. They are labeled
by FIPS code with the file extension ZPX.
Here is the listing of all the states.
11.ZPX District of Columbia
33.ZPX New Hampshire
34.ZPX New Jersey
35.ZPX New Mexico
36.ZPX New York
37.ZPX North Carolina
38.ZPX North Dakota
44.ZPX Rhode Island
45.ZPX South Carolina
46.ZPX South Dakota
54.ZPX West Virginia
You need the OCX file to get PM to work with WinAPRS.
That file is contained within this zip file. [in the orig distribution
package I used to release]
*** Precision Mapping OCX ***
This OCX will only work with 32 bit flavors
of Windows. It will not work with Win 3.1.
Installing Precision Mapping OCX Files -
Unzip the file PMAP_OCX.zip
If using WinZIP, be sure the box is checked
to 'Use Directory Names'
If using PKUNZIP, use the -d option to insure
everything gets unzipped into the correct
Then run the .bat file titled 'pmapocx.bat'
You can run the bat from windows explorer
or from a dos command prompt.
That's all there is to it. All the right
files should now be in the right places.
Your directory -
Windows/system/ should now contain
Like any good, clean installation, it's probably
wise to reboot your Windows machine.
*** NOTE - it's not always necessary to install the PMap program,
just the states, folders and everything else. But it's simpler to just
install the thing. ***
