GeoimageProcessor - Water and Blend Mask Automation Tool 3.11

Shapefile to raster processor for water and blend masking for FSX and Prepar3d using FSEartiles BMP source images and AreaEarthInf**.txt files, as well as using TIF files that contain geolocation information.

Update 18 Jun 2019:
Latest version has a lot of optimizations including a major change to the shell console in that the tool runs solely in a single shell instance to avoid popping up during other operations you are doing. The tool now remains running in the background!

Updated README.txt and added shapefile for all land area with clipped water areas for a single water type mask operation.

You can download Aerial Imagery TIF files from Land Information New Zealand with Common Attributions licensing allowing commercial use as well:

FS Earth Tile BMP images can be obtained from the FSET program not for commercial use. Just copy the AeraEarthInf.txt files into the AreaEarthInf folder and the source BMP images to the respective FSET Source imagery folder and run the GeoimageProcessor.bay file in the "Program" folder.

If you have GIS water data for your desired location then you can use that data. This tool is not restricted to any specific location. I'm just up-selling the availability of Aerial Imagery from our own source.

Hi,
What don't you understand exactly?

For processing FS Earth Tiles BMP images you need the AereaEarthInf txt file and the accompanying BMP image for the resample tool. That's it.

For TIF files not using FS Earth Tiles, you just need to put them in the TIFSourceImage folder.

Make sure you read the README.txt file and there are also some directions in the appsettings.json file which you will use to configure you folder locations and settings but you should be able to just use the out of the box configuration settings and only need to change all the folder paths...you need to make sure ALL the folder paths are allocated to the folders otherwise you will get a folder path error so this is why I included default folders.

If i get some time I'l look at doing a Youtube video with instructions.
