Header.mif not found

Recommended Posts

Q: I have a 12da file that I would like to convert to mid/mif using the '12da_to_from_mif.exe' tool. The 12da file is on GDA coordinates as I have have double checked by opening it up in 12da. However, when I run the tool by changing the file command in the .bat file to what is shown below the tool comes up with:

WARNING - No MI Projection of mif header file ..\model\Header.mif found.

Non-Earth Coordinates will be used.

Command in .bat file is:

12da_to_from_mif.exe ..\model\road_proposed.12da

Can you please assist as I would like to have mid/mif files that are on GDA coordinates.

A: You need to have a file called “Header.mif” in the same folder as your .12da file. Header.mif is used to set the projection of the .mif file created, so simply copy any .mif file with the correct projection into the folder and rename as Header .mif (there is no need to have a .mid file).
