Tables in GIS Geoproject report generator

01.10.2008 18:10 ·  GIS  ·  geoproject, howto

Probably everyone who has started to work with the Report Generator in GIS Geoproject has asked the question: “How can I insert a table in a template?” This question comes up again and again because tables are one of the main elements of various cadastral and geodetic documents (just think of coordinate lists, azimuth tables, and land explications).

At first glance, the lack of standard tools like in MS Word or OOo Writer makes this task impossible. But this is only at first sight. In reality, FastReport, and thus the Report Generator, are at least as good as text editors when it comes to creating tables.

One of the most commonly used primitives of the Geoproject 5.x GIS Report Generator is the Cadastral Plan component (PlaneView). Its short description can be found in the “Geoproject 5” GIS User Manual (chapter 11 Designer — Document Template Editor). Since this component is very powerful and most templates will need it, and since there is not much information in the manual, I think it is time to get to know it.


Improving UX in GIS Geoproject

GIS Geoproject is a very popular, convenient, and easy-to-use geographic information system. It is used by more than 350 organisations from different countries, and this number is still growing.

The reason for writing this post was the fact that many people use the system as it is after installation. There is nothing wrong with that — the default configuration of Geoproject is quite universal, and it can be used without changes to perform almost any task. It is possible to work this way, but in my opinion, it is not very comfortable. This post is dedicated to improving the user experience when working with GIS Geoproject.
