Run make_blank to create a new blank mapsheet from the old one, make sure you choose the SAME pixel resolution!!! This command creates a blank mapsheet with an unrotated header (I usually name it temp.blank). Make sure you choose the SAME data type and pixel resolution!!!
make_blank -force_orthogonal -area Area3.r4This replaces the header of your old mapsheet with the new unrotated one that we created in the last step. I like to copy the original mapsheet to a temporary file and replace the header of that instead of mucking around with th e original file.
cp Area3.r4 temp.r4 edhead -replacehead temp.blank temp.r4Now that we've got our unrotated mapsheet, we can go ahead and make an ESRI gridfile. This generates a .hdr and .flt file.
r4toESRI -in temp.r4 -out Area3I usually make a gzip'd tarball when sending it off to someone:
tar -cvf Area3.tar Area3.hdr Area3.flt gzip Area3.tarDon't forget to clean up...
rm Area3.hdr Area3.flt rm temp.r4 temp.blank
