Penmap uses the coordinate systems from Trimble Geodetic Library (TGL). If the needed coordinate system is not available a new coordinate system can be build up via

Trimble Coordinate System Manager.


Trimble Coordinate System Manager is available for Microsoft Windows and in general installed with Trimble Business Center or Trimble Access.

It’s also downloadable via Trimble Installation Manager at Penmap Project Manager or Penmap for Windows area.


The attached support bulletin explains

  • Define a coordinate system in Trimble Coordinate System Manager
  • Export coordinate system from Trimble Coordinate System Manager to jxl
  • Use your user defined coordinate system in Penmap


Enhancement is available in:

  • Penmap for Windows
  • Penmap for Android
  • Penmap Project Manager
  • Trimble Coordinate System Manager
