Map Views

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

A map that consists of up to 200 layers is quite complex and hard to understand for casual non expert users. A map collection increases complexity even more. Therefore WebOffice 10.8 SP2 provides the concept of predefined map views which makes switching between different visibility settings of layers, layer groups and services much easier for the user.

Description

Name of 'Table of content'

The default map view displayed by WebOffice when the project is opened, is specified in the 'TOC of Map collection'. For being able to later on switch back to this map view, a name shown in the map views list box of the WebOffice Client should be configured. Useful names are e.g. 'Standard' or 'Initial View'.
