    Making a map renderer.

    Hi, I've got a job to make a 3D renderer in DX that can render a map based on Mapinfo's GeoSet file. Any idea where I should start? I believe I need to load and get the data from the GeoSet but is there any open source library that I can use? Thanks in advance.

    Nevermind. I've found the GDAL (GDAL: GDAL - Geospatial Data Abstraction Library) library. Thanks anyway. Maybe I'll pester you guys around for a while. But now I'll have to learn about the library.
