Raster Handler for ERDAS Imagine to MapInfo Overview

Raster Handler for ERDAS Imagine to MapInfo (IMGRHL) allows to display and register rasters of ERDAS Imagine (*.IMG files) in MapInfo.

Georeferenced *.IMG images will be displayed directly in MapInfo Professional, MapX, and MapXtreme environments.

Additional utilities for free:

UtilityFunction
img2tab creates *.TAB file for each *.IMG file in batch mode. MapInfo Table is created automatically and then can be used to open the geo-referenced raster image.
Erdasreg.mbx opens *.IMG and registers it on-fly.

How it works?

The Raster Handler for ERDAS Imagine to MapInfo (IMGRHL) provides MapInfo Professional the ability to open and display raster images in the ERDAS IMAGINE format.

All you need to do to use IMGRHL is install it in the same directory as MapInfo Professional.

Then you can open automatically any ERDAS IMAGINE raster image that has been registered as a MapInfo table. You can also register additional ERDAS IMAGINE raster images as MapInfo tables. Follow the steps below.

The procedure for opening unregistered .IMG raster files in MapInfo Professional, version 6.0 and earlier, is very specific and must be followed exactly as written.

    To open an .IMG file:

  1. In MapInfo Professional, choose File >>> Open Table. The Open Table dialog will occur.
  2. Navigate to the folder where your .IMG raster files are located. Notice that the files do not display in the file list.




  3. In the Files of Type drop-down list, choose Raster Image.




  4. Type *.IMG in the File name box and click Open. Any .IMG raster files you have now display in the file list.




  5. Click the .IMG file you want to select it and click Open. You can also double-click on the file to open it.

Once you open the .IMG file, follow the same procedure to register it as you would any other raster file. For more information on raster registration, see Chapter 15 in the MapInfo User's Guide.

You can also register georeferenced image files as MapInfo tables. The current allowed map projections are:

  1. "Geographic (Latitude/Longitude)";
  2. "Gauss - Kruger 1942".
To do this, run the program "IMG files registration" or choose Tools > Register ERDAS IMAGINE's image file.
