Geomap function does not show a map

Nov 1, 2014

Issue:

A drawing does not show a map after the GEOMAP command was used.

Causes:

The minimum and maximum Latitude/Longitude settings for Coordinate System are not correct.

Solution:

The GEOMAP command will work if :
  • You are connected to A360,
  • A coordinate system has been assigned to your drawing.
  • You have accepted use of Online images. (You are asked after the _GEOMAP command.)
The map is displayed if the view is within the coordinate system range.
 
If you are outside of the coordinate system range, you can
  • Convert the drawing to a more appropriate coordinate system and bring the image in
  • Change the min/max latitude/longitude as described below.
  1. Open the coordinate system in use and check if the minimum and maximum settings are correct for the location of interest (MAPCSLIBRARY).
  2. If the settings are not correct, duplicate the coordinate system in order to be able to edit it.
  3. In the duplicated system, adjust the minimum and maximum Latitude/Longitude settings.
