FG and images geolocated in Feet

Post by sbm999 » Wed Apr 21, 2010 12:43 pm

I am using FG with State Plane Coordinates and Feet and have come across a problem.
When I import an image underlay that has a location file, whether it be a .jgw or .tfw, FG assumes that the coordinate information is in Meters and multiplies by 3.280833 to get to Survey Ft.
That is fine if all the images are setup for Meters, but the majority of data that we come across in WA is setup in Feet.
Have I missed something, is there an option that will turn off this conversion? If there isn't, please add this feature as it is a chore to convert the files, only to have them converted back to Feet in FG.

It is on the list of things to do .... plus we want to add in better raster support in the future as well.
