Is there a way to extract the bounding coordinates from a global mapper grid (GMG) file? It appears to be a binary file and a quick scan of the file didn't reveal anything that would hint at the location of where the bounding coordinates would be. Is there a specific byte location or does the entire file have to be parsed in order to find out the bounding coordinates?
As an alternative, I am prepared to write a script that would use the EXPORT_METADATA command to export the metadata (which I presume would include the bounding coordinates) for all loaded GMG files and then create a separate non-global mapper script to re-process the exported .txt file to extract the bounding coordinates. I was just wondering if there is an easier way.
