[nbos] GIS Mapping files
Fri Dec 7th, 2007
A little off topic I guess, but I have a new GPS that can handle maps in the
following formats:

.dxf, .dwg, .eoo, .shp, .gml, .gpx, .mif, .tab, .tfw, GeoTIFF and MrSID.

Does anyone know what the differences are with these and what I should look
for if I want a topographical map file for, say, Iraq or Afghanistan?

Also, does anyone know of a good site for getting map files for around the
