fpc contigs in pmap display

Dear all,

I am a little bit confused about the PMAP and GMAP displays.

I use fpc to create a physical clone map and read the ace dump of my fpc 
map into acedb. The ace dump as it comes from fpc is designed in a way 
that the contigs are displayed in the GMAP display. My problem is that I would
like to try to show the contigs in PMAP display, but up to now I was not able 
to do so. I am not quite sure how I should change my model.wrm and how I 
should edit the fpc ace dump to achieve this. Specifically, can I directly 
translate the genetic map positions as in

Clone : "J19"
Map ctg1 Left 7.000
Map ctg1 Right 30.000

into a PMAP position? 

And if yes, is it worth the effort, meaning is it recommendable to use the 
PMAP display instead of the GMAP for fingerprint contigs?

Any hint will be very much appreciated.
