How to add FacilitiesMap Plotting custom images

You can customize the appearance of the overlay images used in the FM Plotting function, namely the:
  • North arrow:



  • Scale bar:

  • Scale measurements (MapScale_Text1200Ft.png shown below):

The default location of the FM Plot images is in the \FmDataFiles\Images\FmPlot\ directory. The images are as follows:
  • North arrow (MapArrowNorth.png)
  • Scale bar (MapScale.png)
  • Scale measurements (MapScale_TextXXFt.png): note that XX is the numerical value of the 1" to XX feet measurement, all available values which are defined in the site settings, under "Allowed Print Scales".
To replace the overlay images, simply save a new image file with the same name over each of the existing overlay images, with the following restrictions:
  • North arrow: PNG image (24-bit with transparency), 1200px width x 1726px height, 72 pixels per inch.
  • Scale bar: PNG image (24-bit with transparency), 2400px width x 800px height, 72 pixels per inch.
  • Scale measurements: PNG image (24-bit with transparency), 2400px width x 800px height, 72 pixels per inch. A scale image should be made for each scale value that is valid for all sites on the server.
    Note that the scale measurement images are intended to sit on top of the scale bar, so should be designed as such:
