bringing an image into GMS


Recommended Posts

I have a model that was created without a reference frame. Now I want to bring in an image or shapefile that shows my site with the model. I have tried to define a coordinate system for the model, but when I bring in the images, they are extremely off.

Is there a way to match up an image and a model without a coordinate system OR is there a way to georeference like you would in GIS where you click on two similar points to line them up?

If you have two points on your model which is on the same location with two points on the map image, (if you have three it is better):

1. Take note of the coordinate of the two points on the model.

2. File | New

3. Open the image file, change the type to jpg or *.*

4. Register the image, using 2 Point Registration (or 3 Points Registration).

4. Save the file as .gpr

5. Close everything.

6. Run GMS, Open the model.

7. Open the image file, and check "import to current project" option.
