Creating smooth and automatic intersections among tracks is a hallmark of Ortelius. Ortelius’ exclusive Cartography Tools are vector drawing tools made specifically for map design. Connectable tracks have special properties that form smooth intersections, accept adornments, termination styles, labels, special overlay styles, and more. Connectable tracks look similar to regular paths, but they are indeed special.
This User Guide provides steps to accomplish different tasks with Ortelius’ cartography tools. We highly recommend users review Ortelius: Best Practices for Editing Track Networks (PDF) for an in-depth perspective of how tracks work and how to use them for best results.
