Creating multiple GeospatialPDFs in batch

We wish to create multiple Geospatial PDFs, with vector and raster as input and a AOI/Shape File as a template of the areas to output. We need to keep the vector as vector, and have a layered Geospatial PDF at the end including attributes. How can this be acheived in Spatial Modeller please?

[ Edited ]

The Create Geospatial PDF operator only uses a rectangular Boundary output area. Will a single AOI/Shapefile extent be used to define the rectangular boundary for each Geospatial PDF? Or will you use a AOI/Shapefile with multiple geometry extents to define the boundary for each Geospatial PDF? For example, a single shapefile with multiple polygons that define standardized map sheets.

 

The vector features need to be rasterized (Convert to Raster) in the model and then passed to the Raster Information operator which will pass the rasterized boundary extents to the Create Geospatial PDF operator.

Re: Creating multiple GeospatialPDFs in batch

We were thinking of usign one ShapeFile with multiple polygons, one for each print. Which method is easiest - I presume we'd need to iterate through a folder if individual ShapeFiles if using one per print?

Re: Creating multiple GeospatialPDFs in batch

One shapefile with multiple polygons, one for each print can be used. You would need to iterate through the feature polygon geometries, one per print. We will return back shortly to this community post with a prototype model to look at.
