export.ini and export.csf
For exporting shape files into GeoMedia, two (2) files must be copied in the same directory as the shape files. The "export.ini" and the "export.csf" files are required to identify the proper coordinate system. The file names must also match the directory where they are being stored. For example, if the shape files are stored in a directory call "mines", then the file names must be changed to "mines.ini" and "mines.csf." The final step is to modify the path of the "export.ini" or in our example case the "mines.ini" file. The current path is:
For the previous example, the new path for shape files placed in the "mines" directory in c: drive would be:
Following the modifications to the text file, the file must be saved.
