Problems reading .big files

Post by Guest »

I'm trying to convert .big files to a more universal readable format. Bot Nconvertor isn't able to read the .big files I'm trying to convert ('could not be determined').

I've extracted to .big files from a IGN 1:25.000 CDROM (French maps producer). .big is originaly the Cartes Michelin format and is supported in Xnview. I suspect the by IGN used .big format is slightly changed for protection purposes... Has anyone any idea or even some experience how to convert this 'propierty' format?

Hello!

Just wondering if this was ever fixed? I've just run into the same problem. I can provide a sample .big if needed, but they're pretty big (over 500MB). I think they contain a lot (!) of images.
