Georeferenced Prints from Geospatial Portal

Dear all,

is there a way to print some georeferenced print from the Geospatial Portal? I would like to print something from GEospatial Portal and then add the print in the Apollo Catalog.

Thank you very much

Re: Georeferenced Prints from Geospatial Portal

HI Giuseppe,


Geospatial Portal's printing engines always generate plain (not georeferenced) PNG files from the snapshot page which contains a copy of active map window content from a Portal session. The GraphicsMagick tool only takes this file and distils it into a PDF document.


From my point of view a creation of geospatially tagged PDF might be possible but requires some effort.

  • One can utilize Portal SDK for creating a Custom snapshot page
  • Somehow alter the GraphicsMagick command line to either include geospatial information / or pass the outputting PDF file to another process which will embed it. The open questions are:
    1. How to extract that information from Portal
    2. How to nclude it in the printing command line.
      That would require further investigation.
