iMOD User Manual version 5.2 (html)


All information of an iMOD project as shown in the iMOD Manager is saved in an iMOD Meta File (IMF). The file enables to save the project contents for later use. The IMF-file contains information to display the selected maps including legend and topographical overlays.

The IMF-file is saved in ASCII-format and it has a logical structure. However it is not advised to change this file outside iMOD due to the long list of map properties.

On default, iMOD saves the content of the iMOD Manager each minute whenever the option Autosave On (1 minute) from the File menu is checked. This file is called AUTOSAVE-IMOD.IMF and is located in the folder {USER}\imffiles.
