I'm still learning some of the basics in the AutoCAD Map features. Most of my work has been using a map that is connected to data. My raster image is connected to a Sid file which covers more area than I usually need to work with.
What is the best way to work with a small area at a time? I cannot seem to imageclip the connected raster image.
Thanks for help for probably a pretty basic question.
Solved! Go to Solution.
With data connection to a raster file you can zoom in to the area then right click on the raster layer in the display manager and do a refesh. Now you can zoom out if you need to and it somewhat acts like a clipped image. Just watch the regens or redraw commands.
In my AutoCAD Map that function is called "Resample Raster".
Correct, I had a brain freeze and didn't verify as I replied.
Depending on the image file size and your computer capability try _mapiinsert, zoom extents, zoom window to the area you need, and _view to view manager and NEW named view. You can then select the view by the name in the list ad quickly get to the area of the image you want to see. this avoids the resample raster routine also.
If you are using FDO sources (Rasters, SHP, SDF, SQLite, etc), you can use the MAPUPDATEMAP command
to update ALL FDO connections ... It's very useful !
