Background maps are used to visualize existing locations and project planing progress. PDF can be placed on top of a map or use as part of the project progress. Background maps are loaded from PDF (Portable Document Format) files.
Steps for importing a PDF map:
1. Background map will be imported into the project as image. Navigate to “Map view” located at the Home tab. Select "Insert" and click on "Image" located at the "Graphics" group.
2. Select background map from appropriate file folder and click Open. Supported image import formats are .pdf, .bmp, .jpg and .png.
3. PDF Properties dialog window will open. The selected map can be positioned correctly using two known coordinate points with blue marker and red marker. Zoom in/out for the right coordinate points using zoom tools from the top panel or using CTRL+mouse wheel. Once the points have been marked, enter the marker coordinates into the coordinate fields and import map by clicking OK.
4. Navigate the map using zoom tools from the View tab or using CTRL+mouse wheel.
