Start Page

The Geographic Calculator's Start Page is an interactive page from which information about job types and updates can be accessed. When a job type is selected from the list on the left, information about the selected job will appear in the Job Guide. Double click anywhere in the job description to create a new job of that type. Jobs created from the Start Page will be added as new active jobs, and also be added to the list of jobs in the Project Manager.

In a new workspace, an Interactive Conversion job will already be active by default.

Any of the Geographic Calculator's thirteen job types (below) may be initiated from the Start Page by selecting one of the jobs and clicking 'Create Job' in the Job Guide dialog for the selected job type. When a job is selected on the left, the Job Guide will display information about that specific job type's capabilities.
