Use this command to load an existing display map
from a map file to an 8- or 16-bit grayscale image. Mapping 16-bit pixel values onto the 8-bit gray scale is especially useful for non-linear contrasting of high-depth images while maintaining the maximum intensity resolution. If you choose this command, the Load map dialog box will appear with the following options:
