How to import existing Feature data (grids, GPS points) into PC Mapper?

You can import Points, Lines and Areas from Shapefiles by selecting Shapefiles as the Data Source then doing File/Import.

If you have GPS points in another PC-MAPPER .FMP file or in a .pmp file, you can open that file then select the Points, and do Edit/Copy. Then open your job file, select the appropriate topic and do Edit/Paste to Topic.

Points need to be placed in a Point type Topic, Lines in a Line type Topic, and Areas in an Area type Topic.

To create a new Topic, select Topic/New Topic and specify the Topic Name and Topic Type.
