Have a look at this topic.
viewtopic.php?f=26&t=5754

There is a file attached to one post called "MyBigFont.h". Have a look at that file. There are comments added throughout as well a description of how it is built at the end of the file.

This might help you.

Do a search on this forum for FontCreator. That will give you some more help.

I used a crude excel spreadsheet of my own making to build my own data.

There's also a link in the FTOLED documentation (that library uses the same font format) to the tool GLCDCreator2, which was used to create most of these fonts:
