Download G.Projector

Download the G.Projector archive format you prefer. Both downloads are approximately 7 MB.

If you are looking for additional overlay files compatible with G.Projector, any of the optional "outline overlays" available from the Panoply software website may be used.

Install and Run G.Projector

Depending on your operating system and how you have it set up, installing G.Projector may be as simple as double-clicking the GProjectorJ archive icon on your desktop. If not, then you may have to use the appropriate command-line call from the shell.

The GProjector archive contains a folder called GProjectorJ which holds the following items:

  • The G.Projector.jar file
  • Sample source map images in a folder called "sample_maps".
  • A README file.

Again, depending on your operating system, you may be able to launch G.Projector by simply double-clicking on the G.Projector.jar file. But if that doesn't work, then you would need to launch from a shell command line by typing:

java -jar G.Projector.jar
