The Display configuration specifies behavior of map display.


Display configuration

Display configuration




Reference scale 1:

Default scale used for displaying search results in the map.

Gets used if on layer level no explicit reference scale is set.


If Print Templates with Attribute Data are configured, the reference scale is also used as print scale.

Maximum scale 1:

Defines the maximum scale for zoom In tool.

It is not possible to zoom in beyond this scale


When working with cached services WebOffice 10.9 SP1 will only use the scales defined in the map service(s) or in the discrete scale levels.

Display margin

Specify the Display margin (relative to the overall envelope of the whole selection) that gets added to the right, left, top and bottom of the map extent for search result display. Value 0.1 adds 10% of the overall envelope of the whole selection to the displayed map extent.


Value for fixed pans in defined directions (function available in Navigation panel):

Use 1.0 for shifting the map extent by the full current map width/height

E.g. use 0.1 for shifting only 10% of current map extent with each pan step


Determines fixed zoom factor (function available in zoom slider of Navigation panel) to use for changing the current map scale.
