I have some preliminary information on this file. Donno how accurate this is still testing. --Darkfred 08:08, 13 June 2007 (PDT)

This file appears to store the current settings for the display of the 3D GeoGlobe. All of the entrys are in Degrees, stored using fixed point arithmetic in 13:3 format (divide by 8 to find the Real value). Oddly enough, even the zoom factor is store as an angle, which implies that this is a Field of View rather than a distance factor.

0-1 Y rotation of Geoglobe 0-2880
2-3 ?
6-7 X rotation of Geoglobe 0-2880
? 12-13 Zoom of geoglobe 0, 180, 360, 720 (Field of View angle?)

The zoom value is actually the pixel radius of the globe. There are six levels of zoom with the following radius values:

zoom 0: 90
zoom 1: 120
zoom 2: 180
zoom 3: 360
zoom 4: 450
zoom 5: 720
