Components of the map window

The cartographic interface is made up of three parts:

  • The map itself, whose dimensions adapt automatically to your screen configuration

  • The "command buttons" that allow you to use various functionalities

  • A complete map key is accessible from the "map key" button

This map key can be downloaded in PDF format.

Functionalities

Display to view the positioning of sites, locations and projects resulting from your search on the map. It is also possible to display the out of criteria elements of your search.

Points of interest to display or hide the points of interest of your choice, for instance panoramic views and projects by means of a pictogram. Of course, it is possible to click on the pictograms. They will redirect you to a more detailed window.

Thematic maps to display various criteria (activities, retailers, new shops, vacant locations) corresponding to colour codes.

Personalised Annotations to allow you to add comments and symbols on the map in order to highlight the elements of your choice. There is a range of tools at your disposal: circles, arrows, surface areas, text areas with various sizes and colours. They will allow you to communicate your analysis clearly and professionally.

Personalised Annotations are also exported when maps are downloaded in order to keep these comments at the end of your working session.

The "Measuring tools" area offers you 3 tools to measure distances, perimeters and surface areas.

To measure a distance, select the starting point with a left click. Define the distance using the red mark. Conclude with a second left click on the map.
Click again on the pictogram in the left column to deselect it.

To measure a surface area, select the vertices of the surface area you wish to measure with a left click and conclude with a double left click.
Click again on the pictogram in the left column to deselect it.

The "Print-Save" area gives you the opportunity to save the displayed map in PNG and PDF format.

For the PNG format, click on the pictogram and the area visible on the screen is imported in the file.

For PDF files, you can choose among 4 formats: A3 Landscape and Portrait, A4 Landscape and Portrait.

It is advisable to use the preview mode to adjust the framing you wish to save.

When the preview mode is enabled, the cartographic interface decreases in 2 zoom levels to allow you to adjust the framing with precision.

Select one of the A4 and A3 formats. The area to print is highlighted. A simple "click and drag" allows you to adjust the area you wish to print.

Print or save your maps in the desired format by clicking on the A4 and A3 pictograms. To display the preview, the cartographic interface decreases in 2 zoom levels. Nevertheless, it is the initial level that is downloaded and appears in the PDF file.

To exit the preview mode, click again on "Activate preview mode".
