Export Profile

Choose one of the configured export profiles from the drop-down list.


Export File Type

Depending on the selected export profile, choose the desired export file type.


Export Projection (Optional)

This option is only available if one or more projections have been configured in the WebOffice 10.9 SP1 project configuration. If available, the user can select a specific projection. If the selected projection is different than the projection used by the WebOffice 10.9 SP1 project, the data export will be reprojected to the specified projection.

Note: A default projection can be specified in WebOffice extract server.


Export Data

In order to export the data, the user has 2 different options in the WebOffice flex client:

Export the current extent:
Simply zoom to desired map extent and click on the button Export Current Extent in the data export form.


Data export the current extent

Export an extent defined by a custom polygon:
The second option is to create an arbitrary polygon. Every left mouse click/touch adds a polygon vertex, finish the polygon with a double click or click the check mark which appears after setting the third vertex. This operation triggers the export process immediately, no need to click the Export button. You can download the export via the URL which automatically pops up in the download container. In case a snap layer is configured, it can also be used to export data with high accuracy. Use the pointsnap as described in chapter Measure/Markup.

Note: In WebOffice flex Client the first snap profile configured in the project configuration will be used.

includes all objects that are inside the export extent or intersected by it

clips all objects at the export extent boundaries

Note: See Individual Extent for details about the configuration.

Note: The data export tool requires a WebOffice 10.9 SP1 application with activated WebOffice usermanagement, where an Application Profile has to be configured that includes the WebOffice - Export (Standard) Application Role and is assigned to the group who uses the WebOffice 10.9 SP1 project.

Note: See chapter WebOffice extract server for details about the tool configuration in WebOffice author.
