Read about the new Photogrammetric Mapping Control File Format
In August of 2000, Caltrans changed the file format for Photogrammetric Control. Caltrans provides mapping contractors with the control information for each individual mapping order. The old control file format utilized .GPA as the file extension. The new control file utilizes .GPE. Both formats will be available to the mapping contractor until January 1, 2001. After that date .GPE will be the only format available.
