Insert Raster Image

If “regular” digital maps do not exist, the existing map basis can be scanned and used as background information in AutoCAD. Use this function to insert several raster image files into AutoCAD/Novapoint in one process. The minimum requirement of the function are listed below:

Run the function from:

MOUS_ICO Toolbar: Not available from the Toolbar

MOUS_ICO Menu: Novapoint > Map > Insert Raster Image

KEYB_ICO Command Line: Not available from the command line

Command prompts for:

Read one or several files [One/Several/?] <One>: Use the key O for a single file and S for several files. In this example, several files are inserted.

The dialog List file with the name of raster files (Use DIR /B /S listing) will pop up. Select the text file having the list of images to be inserted.

If the mage already is Attached in the drawing, must it be detached before you run RASTER_IN.

Draw rectangles around images [Yes/No] <Yes>: The default option is Yes

Draw all rectangles on a single layer or use the filename as layer name for rectangles [Single/Filename] <Single>: Rectangles can be drawn on a separate layer using the option Filename

Layer name for rectangles around images and text showing image name <0>: Type in a layer name

To create a new layer, specify the layer name and Novapoint will create the layer.

Draw only filename (remove path) [Yes/No] <Yes>: Enter

The function will now list the image files that have been inserted into your drawing.
