Each metigo MAP 4.0 mapping project consists of several files. These are rectified images and / or CAD-files (DXF-/DWG-file). These files include the metric base for your mapping project. Besides evaluation data, the project file *.MAP contains the mapping class settings, the hatching and line types required for mapping, the colour palettes as well as informations about frames, title blocks and legends. Further the project file includes project settings such as project scale, scaling factor for hatchings and measuring units, numeric precision, font height for dimensionings and area evaluation data.
This section explains:
Whilst mapping you can load within the same project additional missing hatchings, line types or colours and edit display options.
Create a New Project
Save a Project
Go to the menu Project>Save Project, in order to save the edited project. All evaluation with their respective classes (dimensioning, area mapping, annotations,....), the image details and the parameter for the display (measurement units and decimal precision for dimensioning and areas, settings for individual measurements of areas and the font size) will be saved in the project file.
Note: Hatchings, lines and colours used in the project are saved to the project file, too. The corresponding symbol files are only need to create a new project.
To finish your session, close the project by clicking on Project>Close Project. To save the project in a new folder select Project>Export>Mapping Project (see also Mapping Export). The following dialogue box opens and you can enter a new project name. The image file retains its original name. If you would like to save the project file in another directory, the image file and the image symbol folder are copied automatically into the new directory.
By saving the project file, metigo MAP creates an automatic backup copy (*.BAK) of the last project version. If the project file cannot be restored, you can rename the BAK file as project file (*.MAP) and continue working with this file. In addition to the BAK file, a second backup copy (*.BK1) is created as daily backup during the first backup of a session. This means the *.BK1 saves the work of this day and is overwritten the next day by a current daily backup copy.
Further, an auto-saving option saving your project in specified intervals is integrated in metigo MAP. You can switch on and off this option via Project>Program Options and define an interval.
Note: Please, note that automatic saving overwrites the BAK-file and MAP-file.
Open a Project
To load an existing project, select Project>Open Project. metigo® MAP opens the rectified image and the available evaluations, so that you can continue editing.
Note: Please, note that the image file of the digitally rectified image is not saved in the project file. It will be saved to the folder “rectify“. Changing the image file externally, e.g. altering image size and resolution with an image processing software, the image file will be read no longer!
Note: Always create a back-up copy of your image file and save it to a separate folder!
Loading a rectified image, the respective data of the rectified image is verified. If any discrepancies regarding image resolution, size and scale or a missing image appear, the rectified image will not be loaded and only the vector data of the most recent evaluation will be displayed. In that case you may however reload the image file anew and reposition it to the paper space.
If you still have a backup copy of the missing / modified image at another location, simply copy it into the respective project folder. Reload the project or reinsert the image file directly into the project by selecting Image>Load Rectified Image.
