  • File → User Preferences... → Addons → Install from File...
  • Find the file in your file system and press Install from File... button
  • Enable the addon by checking the Enable an addon

Usage

Details

The transverse Mercator projection with the central meridian coming through the center of the imported area is used for the import. The projection choice is explained by the negligible size distortion in the vicinity of the central meridian.
