Plotting: Output georeferenced DWF

Embedding georeferencing information into DWFs generated by MapGuide would allow for improved round-trip workflows:

  • View map in MapGuide, turning on only information you need
  • Take map out in field with GPS-enabled laptop
  • Mark-up map as desired
  • Return to engineering department for entry into corporate database

Currently, we're generating DWF mapbooks of specific themes, but it would be nice if the users could have more control.

DWFs created out MapGuide should be able to be marked up using Autodesk Design Review.

When a generated DWF open in Autodesk Design Review, the map is in "Unknown" units. Consequently, I am unable to use the measure tools to produce a meaningful result. It seems clear that the actual units are in "page space", because when I measure across the entire width of the page, I get about 8.5

At the minimum, the capability that DWF generation needs is the ability to embed geo-referencing information into the DWF such that:

  • the source extent can be extracted later using the DWF Toolkit API
  • Measure tools inside ADR work correctly
  • You can use Geo-specific tools like integration with GPS
