MapViewer 8 New Feature Series: The Coordinate System Dialogs

This week's new feature series is a tutorial on how to use the new coordinate system dialogs in MapViewer 8! If you've used Surfer 12, Didger 5, or Strater 4, the Assign Coordinate System dialog may look familiar, only with a few new perks added! In MapViewer 7, you could access the Map Projection options dialog by clicking the Map | Convert Projection, Map | Calibration, or Tools | Reproject Data File commands, or when importing or creating a map using files with an unknown projection. In MapViewer 8, the Assign Coordinate System dialog can also be accessed from several different places.
