|convert from BSB||convert to BSB|
To convert a BSB chart file to a TIFF image file:
bsb2tif australia4c.kap australia4c.tif
To convert a TIFF image to a BSB chart you need a template file containing all the cartographic information for the image. The template file is merely the ASCII text lines at the start of a BSB file, and for the conversion to work it must contain the correct image width and height in the BSB/ section (RA=width,height).
In this example I used the original BSB file as the template:
tif2bsb australia4c.kap edited.tif new.kap
Conversion to and from GeoTIFF files is planned but currently not implemented.
Usage of bsb2ppm and ppm2bsb is similar to the TIFF utilities.
bsb2ppm australia4c.kap australia4c.ppm
ppm2bsb australia4c.kap edited.ppm new.kap
Convert a BSB file to a PNG file:
bsb2png australia4c.kap australia4c.png
Conversion from PNG back to BSB is currently not implemented.
