Bennu bitmap file. A MAP file contains a simple and rectangular graphic of 1, 8, 16 or 32bpp. These files can be loaded and generated by using load_map and save_map functions respectively.

The main advantage of using MAP files instead of regular PNG files (or other more extended formats) is that the former stores not only bitmap data but also other information, e.g. Control Points data, which may be useful when programming with Bennu. Its main disadvantage is not being supported by conventional graphic editing programs.

Some IDEs and other third-party tools give support to the MAP format and allow you to convert within this and other formats.
