Calibrating the maps in OziExplorer

The only files you need to copy to an Ozi folder are the .tif and .tfw files.  The .tif files aren't georeferenced, so Ozi doesn't know the UTM zone number needed in the Importing process.  However, the first two numbers in the map name is the UTM zone number.  Read more about calibrating Mexican DRG maps in OziExplorer by BiciMapas (HERE).

IMPORTANT NOTE: When importing a map, check the UTM zone number and if not the same as the map name, edit it.  The Projection of all the maps is UTM and the Datum of the 1:250,000 maps is NAD-27 CONUS, while the Datum of the 1:50,000 maps could be either NAD-27 CONUS or NAD-83 (also known as ITRF92).  One must check the map border to determine the correct horizontal datum.
