Creates an image capture of online maps.

BricsCAD Lite; BricsCAD Pro; BricsCAD Mechanical; BricsCAD BIM


Creates a rectangle image capture of an Microsoft Bing online map and embeds it in the drawing.
Note: You can use the GEOMAPIMAGETYPE, GEOMAPIMAGERESOLUTION and GEOMAPIMAGEUPDATE commands to further manage the map image.


Select the area on the Microsoft Bing map of which you want to create a capture. An embedded image of the online maps is then created, and a frame is displayed on the map indicating the created image capture.

Note: Before creating a map image capture, you first have to run the GEOGRAPHICLOCATION command to define and store a geographic location for the current drawing and run the GEOMAP command to set an online maps style.

The size and/or the position of the map image frame can then be adjusted and the map image is updated accordingly.

Note: To keep only the map image capture visible, run the GEOMAP command again and select the Off option.
Note: The Microsoft copyright and watermark is added in the bottom right corner of the map image.
