The ability to export a view as a high resolution JPEG is designed to help you capture and download your map view with all your desired layers, such as contour lines, heat maps, and line work designs. With a georeferenced copy, you can import it back into ArcGIS, CAD software, etc.
Configure export view
From the DESIGNS or MEASUREMENTS tab, toggle on anything you want to export to the map.
Click the OUTPUTS tab and select Export view as JPEG under the OTHER section.
You’ll notice a box on the map that designates the area to be exported. Set the map view by panning or zooming to what you want to include in the exported JPEG.
Next, configure the JPEG export. Select the View mode and select whether you want to include georeferencing files and the Coordinate Reference System (CRS).
Select the resolution on the slide bar. The higher the resolution, the better the image. However, remember that this will take longer to download and render.
There is a known limitation with this feature that users working with Local Grid Systems should be aware of.
What is it?
When importing a JPEG into a third party software, the georeferencing file (PRJ), which contain the Coordinate Reference System (CRS) for local grid sites, will be blank.
This is expected as local calibrations cannot be completely expressed as PRJ. Third-party software may display an error message that the files have “No Coordinate System.”
What should you do?
Set up a workspace in the correct CRS before importing the georeferenced JPEG. Once imported, the JPEG can be realigned to it's location.
You can either download the file or copy it to your clipboard.
Copy to clipboard
By using the copy to clipboard feature, you can paste the image into any document by either hitting the CTRL+V buttons on your keyboard (CMD+V for Mac users) or right-clicking your mouse and selecting “paste.”
Alternatively, click the DOWNLOAD button to download the file directly to your computer.
