FacilitiesMap Plotting

FacilitiesMap plotting is an optional toolbar setting that replaces the default Infrastructure Map printing, and allows much greater control than the default printing page. It must first be configured by an administrator in order to be available.

  1. Description

    This is an optional setting which allows you to print a text description on the map. It includes the use of tokens, which are dynamic values based on the current map plotting conditions. The tokens are as follows:

    1. {DATE}: The current date.
    2. {DATELONG}: The current date (verbose).
    3. {DATETIME}: The current date and time.
    4. {DATETIMELONG}: The current date and time (verbose).
    5. {USERNAME}: The current user name.
    6. {SITETITLE}: The site title.
    7. {SCALE}: The print scale.

  2. Paper Size

    The paper size of the desired PDF. The paper size and your current browser window dimensions will automatically change to the nearest map scale.


  3. Orientation

    The orientation of the desired PDF. The orientation and your current browser window dimensions will automatically change to the nearest map scale.



  4. Legend: The width of the legend. Please note that due to limitations of the Infrastructure Map architecture, the resulting legend is often of poor quality (especially on larger paper sizes) and it is recommended that this value be left as "None". Note that the availability of the legend is adjustable by an administrator in the site settings, under "Enable Print Legend".

  5. Map Scale: The map scale desired, measured in Imperial Units (only). Note that the changing the map scale will change your zoom scale and will be printed on the map. Note that the available print scales are adjustable by an administrator in the site settings, under "Allowed Print Scales".


You can see the a sample result PDF here: admin-a5df6f02-de09-493b-8556-6bcc99fc9504.pdf. Notice that the header of the plot has been written as specified above in the "Description" field. The footer has automatically been set by the "Print Footer" section of the site settings.
