Executing Query during zoom

434 Views, 3 Replies

I have a county wide aerial image in jp2 format, connected through Data Connect and everytime I pan or zoom it says "executing query". It is very slow getting around in the drawing (tracing over tree line, roads, etc.). I have a Windows 7 64-bit machine with 6 GB of RAM. Is there a setting I can turn off to make zooming, panning, changing layouts, etc. faster?

I've got the same problem.

Have you found a solution to it?

Everytime I zoom in or out, Map 3D Executes a Query and it takes a couple of seconds.


Has anyone come to a solution to this issue?

That is normal behaviour.   Map is querying the raster connected to the drawing which takes time depending on your hardware speed, graphics card, file size etc.  the zoom send the coords of the new zoom area to teh inage and retrieves that portion with the query and then displays it.


inserting the graphic  with _mapiinsert puts the image into the dwg and it works faster because it does not have to query when zooming.


a query takes about 1 to 2 seconds on my computer with the image sizes i work with, (SID s in the 500 to 1000 KB range) zoom the inserted image about 1/5 of that


read up on hardware acceleration and 3dconfig.   those may provide you some things to check
