01 Introduction to GeoMedia Desktop

This tutorial is designed to provide an introduction to GeoMedia Desktop and explores some of the basics concepts, processes, and commands used in geospatial workflows. The tutorial will review how data is presented in the GeoWorkspace; graphic and tabular. It examines standard workflows for accessing and displaying data, which include connecting to Warehouses, reviewing Map Display properties, and Style properties of individual map features. There are exercises that introduce the user to adding and editing features, as well as creating labels. In addition there is an example analytical exercise that demonstrates the generation of Buffer Zones.

 

02 Exploring Window Types (Map, Data, and Layout)

This tutorial is designed to provide an introduction to the assorted window types available in GeoMedia and explores the common workflows that occur in production environments. The tutorial will review the characteristics of the individual window types, as well as the relationships between them.

 

03 Working with GeoMedia GeoWorkspaces
This tutorial demonstrates typical workflows used to start working with GeoWorkspaces. The GeoWorkspace is the container for your data that stores the assorted map windows, data windows, layout window, coordinate system information, and queries you have built. In a GeoWorkspace, you can change its coordinate system, establish warehouse connections, run queries, display data, and perform spatial analyses. The settings and connections you define in a GeoWorkspace are saved in a .gws file. Every GeoWorkspace is built on a template, and you can create your own templates or use an existing one.

 

04 Printing GeoWorkspace Content

This tutorial demonstrates a typical workflow used to print map windows and data windows.
Due to the difference in the types of data within each window and the difference in their respective environments, each window has a unique set of paper-related parameters that must be defined before printing. The map window and data window contain data on a sort of virtual canvas. The data of the map window are geographic, typically stored in ground units, without any reference to a paper layout. Similarly, the data of the data window are tabular, without any reference to a paper layout. Although each window has its own subtleties due to its data type and environment, before printing, the paper layout parameters must be defined through the Page Setup of each window. 

 

05 Customizing the Ribbon Interface

This tutorial will examine GeoMedia’s assortment of customization options, including the Quick Access Toolbar, My Workflow tab, and the Customize Ribbon command. Each of these can be used to design a custom interface to rearrange and/or customize the GeoMedia ribbon interface to suit your own specific needs.
