Will I be able to load large geo-referenced map files on iPAD?

You may use PC-GIS PRO 09 to load a geo-referenced ECW / GeoTIFF / GeoJPEG / MRSID map file then save all or part of the map as a .PIM file for use with iCMTGIS II on iPAD or iGPSGIS II on iPhone.

iCMTGIS II and iGPSGIS II do not load entire image into system memory. The programs only extract screen-size image from the map file. The maximum memory used is no more than 800 KByte for iPad, or 120KByte for iPhone. Therefore, the image size is limited by the storage disk size rather than the amount of system  memory. To minimize the disk space used, we suggest that you use PC-GIS PRO 09 to delimit the map to just the region you will be working in.
