Existing maps, aerial photography, and screenshots are good starting points for building a custom map. But maybe that large map doesn’t fit on your scanner. Or your area of interest is more extensive than shown on that web map’s window. As a result, you have multiple images that need stitched together in Ortelius. The following tips will help you achieve the best results.
Import images using the Image Browser or drag-dropped directly from Apple’s Finder. Images in Apple’s Photos/iPhoto app may be imported through the Ortelius File menu. Screenshots copied to clipboard may be pasted directly onto your map canvas. Use a separate layer to contain each complete base map.
