Map view in MAGNET Project visualizes road lines, areas, tasks, and their scheduled or actual progress on top of a map. New road lines and areas can be created by drawing them into the map, or the drawings can be bound to existing locations. Background maps can be imported into MAGNET Project to enhance map-based and accurate earthwork plans.
Background map can be imported as an image (.pdf, .bmp, .jpg and .png) or using a WMS Map service. When importing a PDF (or other image format) map, the geographical map should have at least two coordinate markers already defined where X marks the coordinate point and their coordinate values (X, Y) are written next to the points.
WMS Maps (Web Map Services) uses a GIS database or one of the distributed geospatial databases to import a map based on an URL. WMS retrieves the map in the form of an image (JPEG/PNG) which is then automatically displayed in MAGNET Project.
