Trim localized Image Maps


‘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

Thanks to the ‘Spatial Manager’ Search for Location function, we can find and insert as drawing objects the boundaries of geographical objects (such as Cities, States, Neighbourhoods, etc.), which allows us to quickly retrieve the Boundary Polylines that we can need to trim a captured image from a Background Map
