Join overlapping vector maps

Join overlapping vector maps


I am trying to convert a standard paper countour line map into vector lines.

And so I have done with the Bitmap function.
However I now have a problem with overlapping vector lines, and combineing them.

This is because I do not only have one image converted, but several (there are close to 100), but in this thread i have only pasted three of them.
Please see the enclosed cdr file (rar compressed.


RE: Join overlapping vector maps

Hi kaviar1,

If you have vector lines you shouldn't have a problem at all. It seems that you may have bitmaps for your lines because you say that you used the bitmap tool. If this is the case you will never be able to combine the lines. All you will get are bitmaps overlaping each other which will then be covering the other lines below them. Sorry I was not able to see the work sample. I don't have a program to open a rar file format
