'Spatial Manager' dynamic Background Maps technology allows you to graphically enhance your maps and drawings, and turn them more readable and practical. In this example we will show you how to combine the image capture of the Maps with some tools included in the supported CAD applications (AutoCAD, BricsCAD and ZWCAD) in order to enhance or highlight areas of the maps
Google Earth allows you to save any image of the maps that are shown on the screen considering which are the active Places and Layers along with a configuration file (.geprint) that stores the Map options but also the Map geolocation. 'Spatial Manager' (AutoCAD, BricsCAD and ZWCAD) now can read from the data in these .geprint files the raster image geo reference while importing it
'Spatial Manager' dynamic Background Maps functions allow you to use preset maps (Bing, MapBox, OpenStreetMap, etc.), but also define and group your own maps by accessing public, administration or enterprise WMS, WMTS or XYZ/TMS servers (Google Maps, Municipalities, Gov. Agencies, etc.). Learn here how to Export/Import your user maps in order to apply them on other computers, share them with other users, etc.
Raster geo-referenced image files are widely used by anyone working in GIS or Mapping environments because they can include orthophotos, scanned geographic areas or details, information overlays, etc. Although almost all CAD applications have tools for attaching raster images in your cartographic drawings, 'Spatial Manager for AutoCAD/BricsCAD/ZWCAD' adds significant functionality to all of them
