DESCRIPTION


wxGUI Cartographic Composer also called wx.psmap is a wxGUI extension which allows the
user to create interactively hardcopy map outputs. This tool generates ps.map
configuration file and then runs ps.map to create PostScript output. There are two modes -
Draft mode for map composing and Preview mode (requires Python Imaging Library) to see how
the result will look like. In draft mode map features (like legend or scalebar) are
represented by a colored rectangle with a label.

Possible output files:

· ps.map instructions file

· PostScript/EPS file

· PDF (using ps2pdf)

Cartographic Composer enables to load in saved instructions file. It works better with
files created by wx.psmap (more tested).

Currently supported ps.map instructions:

· paper

· maploc

· scale

· border

· raster

· colortable

· vpoints

· vlines

· vareas

· vlegend

· text

· scalebar

· mapinfo

· point

· line

· rectangle

· labels

CARTOGRAPHIC COMPOSER TOOLBAR
Generate instructions file
Generates and saves text file with mapping instructions.

Load instructions file
Load text file with mapping instructions.

Page setup
Specify paper size, margins and orientation.

Pointer
Select object on the paper by clicking, drag the cursor while pressing the left mouse
button to move it or resize object (currently only map frame) by clicking on a small
black box in its bottom right corner. Double click to show object properties dialog

Pan
Drag the pan cursor while pressing the left mouse button to move your view.

Zoom in
Interactive zooming with the mouse in both draft and preview mode. Drawing a box or
just a left click with the mouse and zoom-in cursor causes the display to zoom in so
that the area defined by the box fills the display.

Zoom out
Interactive zooming with the mouse in both draft and preview mode. Drawing a box or
just a left click with the mouse and zoom-out cursor causes the display to zoom out so
that the area displayed shrinks to fill the area defined by the box.
