|Raster Image Files
📌 The .CID file hierarchy refers to the chart description layout, initiated, generated, and opened by Navigator, a powerful and feature-satiated celestial navigation toolkit. Accurately, the .CID file branch variation includes custom, specific data regarding a .BMP, .JPG, or .GIF chart image. .CID extension specification suggests internal availability of the entitlement of the concerned chart image, the relevant file description, reference points that specify and manage the image pixels, an MD5 digital signature of an image, and respective restrictions of the chart graphics. The .CID layout is typically composed and utilized when the raster chart graphics, stored and opened in .BMP, .JPG, or .GIF representation is imported into Navigator bundle with the assistance of the ChartMaker tool that comes bundled and deployed within the predefined Navigator distributive setup package. Afterwards, the .CID file contents are applied to store relevant data regarding the raster chart, which is then employed by Navigator to visually monitor and represent the chart to the user side without any auxiliary extensive efforts.
📌 The .CID file format basement is analyzed, opened, researched and investigated by Navigator software product, a modular utility for celestial discovery of meridian passages, astronomical body positions, lines of position, perpetual almanac and other compound plugins. The .CID compliant Navigator toolkit is distributed and shared on the proprietary license and supported by Windows shell, unexceptionally.
