Python Scripting [6C]: Layer Sidecar Duplication & Renaming for NZ Rail Maps 3

After the use of the duplicate.py script for a while, an amendment has been decided upon and implemented this week. This is to simply duplicate the sidecars where there is no change of pixel size involved.  For example it may be just a case of the prefix being changed. To implement these changes the following… Continue reading Python Scripting [6C]: Layer Sidecar Duplication & Renaming for NZ Rail Maps 3

I am still in two minds about whether to go with 0.2 metres from 0.4 metres source… Continue reading NZ Rail Maps: Optimising Gimp and using 4x4x4 grid for mosaics [4]
