Installation instructions:
Unzip all the files into a folder that is not under C:\Program Files. Recent versions of Windows make ZIP archives look like folders, but you must unzip everything into a folder e.g. C:\MyMaps before opening the .map file with PlanetGIS. Right-click on the .zip file and click "Extract All..."
This archive must be extracted into a folder which has all the provinces of South Africa in subfolders (eg. EC, WC, NC, etc). (See example at the bottom).

You need to install 7-zip to be able to uncompress the smaller version.

The combined SA-cadastral map and the SA-administrative map needs to be in the same folder and in the parent folder for the provinces, EC, etc. (Some provinces can be omitted)
