Did you know that TruckleSoft can convert your topographical maps to MX GENIO format? This is one of our most frequently asked for services.
Many of the companies we work for only need to create the MX GENIO files so that they can send them on as a requirement of their clients. As a result a company might not have a legitimate need for additional software just to create the MX GENIO files. Then there is the cost of purchasing the software.
We run your mapping (click image to enlarge) through a series of processes to get it ready for conversion.
At the moment we can only support the following types of entities:
- 3D Polyline
We also adhere to a certain naming convention for the MX Feature Codes.
Exporting to GENIO
The mapping can be exported to GENIO format once the required processes have been completed. The exporting in done using a VBA macro that we have developed. Here is a example of the output:

However, we don’t just export your map. We then load the file into a GENIO viewer that we have developed (click image to enlarge).
This is to ensure the conversion went as expected.
The export process is usually very quick. So as long as the mapping is of a good standard and we have the required MX feature codes the conversion can usually be done in one day.
We offer reasonable rates for doing your conversions so please use the Contact Form and get in touch if this service interests you!
