Bitmap File Format
Posted on 2003-11-24
I am currently working on a project that requires me to effectively "dissect" a monochrome bitmap into bits for use with a small LCD panel. I have worked out the header information so that is out of the way but I am having serious problems with how the data is stored. At first I thought it was just a straight forward "on or off" bit arrangement from the bottom right but i'm having doubts now because the data doesn't seem to be displaying what it should.
If someone could give me as much information on how data in a monochrome bitmap is arranged so that I can progress further I would be most greatful to you.
