Selecting BG Maps to Export

Take a look at the above videos that will show you how to Export/Import “User Background Maps” to/from ‘Background Map Definition’ files (*.bmd), a tool included in the “Configure Background Maps” option

This type of files include the definition of one or more ‘Background Maps’ as well as the Group(s) where they are or will be placed. The tool will allow you to export as many Maps as you want to a single file. If you are importing already existing Maps, you can choose to either ignore the import of these Maps or rename them using automatic consecutive numbering

Note: This functionality will also allow you to Import Maps from services such as DroneDeploy and others
