Need Help Converting ESRI .asc Ascii Raster Grid Data to BitMap to draw in program
I have as part of an assignment a task to open and manipulate raster datasets stored in an ascii string format. The main of the task is complete with the processing part working fine, however I want to implement a method that takes this string data and converts it into bitmap data.
My experience using image data formats in programming is fairly minimal however I see this task as something I can use to start learning as I will at some point.
Ok so some information about the program as it is...
Clicking open simply takes the .asc similar ascii filename and passes it to a newly created object Grid, a class I have written for this program.
The constructor takes this file and uses a streamreader to line by line read through the data splitting it down and storing it in a 2 dimensional array 'values[,]'. Each grid is processed seperatly as requested and not stored as a data member as part of a list or such. Just simply as the variable 'g1'.
I want to add a button to the form that takes the data stored in the current instance of g1.values[,] and stores it as a bitmap file. I have already implemented an LinearScale8Bit method that takes the data and converts it to use values between 0 and 255 respective to their initial values.
Some of the methods may be sloppy, as they are part of a practical set by my tutor, or they may be the simplest, I am not an expert and cannot give any recommendations on those.
The methods I have written from scratch are:
The other methods will have heavy influence from my programming style however as I said, the basic algorithm was supplied by my tutor.
Hopefully while looking at the code you understand my problem and the aim of the program a bit better, here are some links that could prove useful.

Basically, how do I convert a Multi-Dimensional Array or type double to an Image of type BitMap.
Also can I not edit the title? A better one would be Need help converting multi-dimensional array to image. Or similar, if anyone has the ability to do so its fine with me if you change it to something similar and suitable.
