Default Compatibility with Vector Map (VMAP) GIS maps

Does anyone know if Flexsim can load Vector Maps (VMAPS) directly or via a conversion process?

Hey Kenny -

I worked for a GIS company for a number of years. I would say I spent 90% of my days writing data conversion scripts. GIS data is always about getting it in the right format and/or converting to a meaningful coordinate system.

I would suggest you find something like we have here in the states - DEMs or Digital Elevation Models. DEMs are basically a 3D model of the terrain that you could convert to VRML without too much work. From there you would take your VMAP files, rasterize them and map them to the VRML.
