Description: Imports geographic data from web services

When you select [Geographic Data], a list of importable geographic data is shown as submenus. Currently only Elevation data can be imported from web.

Please select the geographic data to proceed.

If you’ve not specified the coordinate system for the project, the [Select Coordinate System] dialog (Figure 41) is shown. Please select coordinate system and click on [OK] button.

Then, [Select Region] dialog (Figure 58) is shown. Please use the following operations to select the region, and click on [Next]:

  • Ctrl + Left-dragging to Pan the map.
  • Ctrl + Middle-dragging to Zoom in/out the map. You also can use [Zoom In] and [Zoom Out] buttons.
  • Left-dragging to select region. The selected region is shown as a box with black line.

When you click on [Next] button, the [Zoom Level Setting] dialog is shown. In this dialog, you can change the setting like below:

  • You can select [Zoom level]. If you change the setting, you can review the abstract resolution and the size of data you are going to download, with [Resolution] and [Data size]. The default value of the [Zoom level] is the maximum value, so that user usually use the data with the highest resolution.
  • You can select [Source]. Usually SRTM data distributed by USGS is used, but for example in Japan, you can choose geographic data distributed by GSI.

When you finished setting up the setting, click on [OK]. Then the downloading starts, and the Figure 60 is shown.
