Map Catalog

The MapCatalog is accessible from the Map Composer level.

The MapCatalog shows all MAP (configurations) that have been defined and stored as permanent as a thumbnail images together with their user defined short name and ID.

Clicking on any one of the small MAP images lead to a pop-up page that shows that MAP (in its original viewport) in a larger window together with its META DATA (name, description, owner, creation and modification dates) as well as the list of overlays it was generated from, the paramteer of its (native) viewport (center coordinates and extent defined as radius im meters) and the coordinates of the bounding box of the map.

The maps shown can be selected as background map for

  1. any georeferenced OBJECT CALSS
  2. any georeferenced OBJECT
  3. model domains and thus modelling results

A SELECT button allows to select the MAP as the (new) background for an OBJECT that has called the MapComposer from the map display EDIT button at the OBJECT CLASS selection or OBJECT display level.

From the set of maps shown in the MapCatalog, any individual maps can be selected and shown individually,in a larger window together with its legend,

The SELECT operation changes the default (class specific) background map for the for an OBJECT or OBJECT CLASS, but retains its latest viewport (center point and extent).
