Chimera reads the voxel size and map grid size from the headers of
each of the volume file formats it reads. Often the correct voxel size
is not given in the files and is set to 1.0. If it the file has zero
(or negative) for the voxel size than Chimera uses of size of 1. You
can change the voxel size within Chimera using the volume dialog
Coordinates panel. Then you can save a new file with the volume dialog
File / Save Map As... menu entry.
