[nbos] [FM] Scale and map projections.
Mon Jul 16th, 2007
Is there a way to get the distance tool in FM7 to take map projection
into account? I am trying to measure an island that is in the
temperate zone and get an accurate scale of the place as it would be
on the globe. Conversely (if this is not possible) is it possible to
measure distance in the globe view? The "standard" flat map is
roughly equivalent of a Mercator projection, and I'm looking up the
proportions to do this manually if it's not possible to convert within
the program.
