Import Background Maps dialog

Use this dialog to import maps to the Background Maps tab of the "Administration: Manage Map Data page." For information, see "Administering Maps" in System Administrator's Guide for Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition.

This dialog is also displayed as:

Add Layers dialog
Import Images dialog
Import Layers dialog


Look in

Not available for the Add Layers dialog. Use this box to select the connection to a data source in MapViewer that contains the predefined background maps, layers, or images from which you want to select. Each data source can contain a set of background maps, layers, and images. The sets are not related to each other. (In MapViewer, background maps are referred to as "tiles.")

The list of connections includes all those that have been defined during the configuration of MapViewer.

Available Items

Use this list to select one or more background maps, layers, or images, depending on which dialog is displayed.

Previewing Area

Displays a preview of the selected background map, layer, or image. If multiple items are selected, then the last selected item is displayed. The name of the item is displayed at the top of the Previewing Area.

Preview Map

Available only in the Import Layers dialog. Use this list to select the background map to display for previewing the layer. If no background map is available, then a static image of the layer is shown in the Previewing Area. The default background map displayed is the map that covers the largest spatial area, because that map has the highest probability of displaying the points that comprise the layer.
