Place Picture Image on Map

Select a picture point with the digitizer tool to see the option to Place Picture Image on map... in the right click context menu. This option is useful for creating a locator or site map with embedded images that display points of interest (POI).

After selecting the option, draw a box in the Drag a Box dialog to locate the placement of the image on the planimetric map.

A prompt will specify whether to create leader lines connecting the corners of the image to the original picture point. These lines will be created as regular vector lines, and placed in the User Created Features layer. Select yes to create the lines.

If Yes was selected to create leader lines, specify the style of the lines. The default is 1 pixel solid black leader lines, as seen below.

The embedded image will be added as a new raster image layer in the control center, and can be controlled from there like other image layers.
