Export a Map

You can export the map as an image file in a variety of image formats, including PNG, BMP, JPEG, and TIFF. When you export a map, any markup or measurements that you have added are flattened onto the image and exported too.

From version 1.8.1 of the Geocortex Viewer for Silverlight, you can include georeference data when you export a map image. The georeference data and the map image are included in a zip file that you can download and use in other GIS applications like ArcMAP. When you import the map image, the georeference data is used to position your exported map image in the correct location on the existing map.

To export a map image:

  1. Do one of the following:
    • In the Tasks tab of the toolbar, click Export Map.
    • Right-click on the map image and from the context menu, select Export a Map Image.

      The Export a Map Image dialog box opens.

  5. Do one of the following:
    • Click Download and when the Save As dialog opens, navigate to where you want to save the zip file, and click Save.
    • Click View Image to open the image in your browser.

      The map image opens. The map image is taken at the extent your map was at the time you exported it. If your map contained markup, it is included in the image.

  6. Do any of the following:
    • Copy the image and paste it into an email.
    • Copy the URL.
