Scale is 1":40' or 1:500 metric (approx). Can this type of thing be imported into Templet and used to generate an accurate 21mm track layout?Hi Tony,

Welcome to Templot Club. :)

Yes, certainly it can be imported into Templot, see the background > add a background map or image > menu items.

You know the map scale, so if you also know the DPI setting at which you scanned it, Templot can scale (re-size) it on the trackpad to match your model scale (make sure to set that first). If you don't know the DPI you can probably try some guesses, such as 300 DPI. Otherwise you will need to re-size it manually.

When you say "used to generate an accurate 21mm track layout" are you expecting Templot to do that for you?

If only. :?

Background images such as this are used as a guide to your own track design, by aligning templates over them. The accuracy of the result depends on you, obviously.

Thanks for posting it.

regards,

Martin.
