Object Image Map Window

Parameters

Import

Click to Import an Image Map that has been created or edited in a graphics program. Note that the Image Map file must be a 24-bit Windows Bitmap file (*.bmp).

Export

Click to Save/Export the current Image Map. NOTE: Forester does not save the Image Map file when the Forester file is saved - this must be done manually!

Wipe

Click to wipe all non-grey colours from the Image Map, hence removing any Image Map objects from the scene. Use with caution!!

Clean

When an Image Map is edited in a graphics package, any grey colour (ie Red=Green=Blue) can be used to delete an object location. However, this can leave erroneous grey pixels over the terrain height map. Click this button to return all grey pixels to their appropriate shade (as defined by the terrain altitude at that point).

Pen Type

Line

Select to draw continuous lines when dragging the pointer over the Image Map.

Spray

Select to use a 'spray gun' on the Image Map

Line Thickness
