Layout Plus - new Add On for GeoMedia Desktop

Greetings,

 

My company, XtenGeo recently released a new add on that offers an alternative to the Layout Window. Below is the release announcement. 

 

I am pleased to announce today a new addition to GeoMedia Desktop bringing to GeoMedia clients layout window export rendering enhancements, plus a new conversion utility to translate layout sheets into an XtenGeo report, where it can be further enriched with numerous Report Designer for GeoMedia features.

 

Go beyond the sheet with Layout Plus.

 

This is an opportunity for Hexagon to address some of the concerns expressed by Layout Window clients.

 

I encourage you to check out our new Introduction to Layout Plus video where we demonstrate how GeoMedia clients can take their layouts to a whole new level.

 

Here's the link, https://youtu.be/E4BpfiufQfw.

Layout Plus is an extension to Hexagon's GeoMedia Desktop Layout Window that provides enhanced support for high quality map sheet exports to image files, pdfs and to XtenGeo's Report Designer for further editing.

Hi bfarganel,

 

Thanks for your support.

 

Here's an example the City of Edmonton produced.

And, here's the business case that lead to that work,

In their case, they started off considering using the Batch Plotter, but ran into a lot of limitations. We added the dynamic rotation function to support their needs, as well as conditional layouts, so in exceptional cases they could display a map over 2 pages, rather than one.

 

A full version of the software is available on a trial basis at xtengeo.com.

 

Regards,

 

Perry

Ok, thanks for the examples

 

Is a quick training necessary for a first use of the trial version? Or do you provide some tutorials to make the first basis operations?
