Geographic Mapping Image - How to

CMS IntelliCAD supports Geographic Location and Geographic Maps.
It's now able to set geographic location data to the drawing using GEO command. Users can either choose a file to set the geographic location using data from a .kml (keyhole markup language) or .kmz (compressed KML) file. The first location mark defined in the selected file is used to place the red geographic marker in model space. Alternatively, choose to locate the geographic marker by specifying its latitude and longitude.

After setting the location of a geographic marker it's then possible to setup the default type of the on-line map for newly created map image entities using GEOMAP command. It doesn't change the type of the map image entities that already exist in the drawing. Displays an on-line map provided by a mapping service in the current viewport and options are Aerial, Road and Hybrid.

Lastly, user can insert the map image using GEOMAPIMAGE command.

Geographic map image resolutions can be adjusting using GEOMAPIMAGESETRESOLUTION command.
