Map Management Module

In Hydromagic, the map management module is a tool that allows you to quickly find the correct map for the area you are working in.
When downloading or importing maps, information about these maps, like projection and geo-referencing is automatically added to a database.

When starting a project, you can refer to the map management module to open a map that is suitable for the new project (same map projection).


Launching map management

The map management window can be opened by selecting "Map Management..." from the "Options" item in the main window menu.
Depending on whether you already loaded or created projects, the list of maps will be empty or contain a couple of items.

Adding maps manually

When maps are imported or downloaded, their information is automatically stored in the map management database.
It is however possible to add a single or a collection of maps by hand.

To do so, click the "Add..." button and a file open dialog will appear.
In this dialog, you can select one or multiple map files to index and store into the database.

The following map formats can be indexed:

After importing a collection of maps, the list may look like this:
