Edit Project General Legend Overview Projectview



All settings previously made for a project may be modified here. The form corresponds to the form where the project was defined.

The form contains boxes for entering all necessary project settings (name, project area, coordinate system, and so on). It is divided into four sections, which are explained in the following table.

Field Description
Name Name of the project. Use a descriptive one for better handling and usability. This value will be shown everywhere in the Administrator, where you have to choose from different projects.
Is base project Check the box (= default) to define a "parent" project. If you want to define a merged project uncheck the box. A merged project allows you to take some parts from the parent project.
Project CS Defines the project coordinate system. It has to be a projected coordinate system, that means your coordinates have to be metrical/imperial units.

Blue.pngIf your data is stored in WGS84 (EPSG:4326) coordinates, you must fulfill the following points to get your data shown in GeoMedia Smart Client.

  • A projected coordinate system (Project CS).
  • WGS84 (EPSG:4326) coordinate system. Optionally can be set as a Display CS.
  • At the import process of your data (mainly here) you have to set the Coordinate system to WGS84.


Display CS Defines the display coordinate system for the GeoMedia Smart Client. This may vary from the Project CS and is independent of the data coordinate system.
Edit CS Click on the pencil (Edit cs.png) beside the drop down list and you can edit the chosen coordinate system.


Blue.pngYou have to choose first a coordinate system to edit it.


Add CS Click on the Add cs.png button beside the Edit CS button to add a coordinate system. Make sure to have a corresponding CSF file (GeoMedia coordinate system file) available. This list of coordinate systems will be available whenever creating a new project or editing an existing one. It is not necessarily the list of coordinate systems that is available to the client.


Blue.pngIf the EPSG code is set, be sure it's the correct one.


Coordinate System For detailed information about coordinate systems see here.
East(Min) Most western point of your bounding box. In a mathematical oriented coordinate system it is the X-Value of the lower left corner. In a geodetic oriented coordinate system it is the Y-Value of the lower left corner.
North(Min) Most southern point of your bounding box. In a mathematical oriented coordinate system it is the Y-Value of the lower left corner. In a geodetic oriented coordinate system it is the X-Value of the lower left corner.
East(Max) Most eastern point of your bounding box. In a mathematical oriented coordinate system it is the X-Value of the lower right corner. In a geodetic oriented coordinate system it is the Y-Value of the lower right corner.
North(Max) Most northern point of your bounding box. In a mathematical oriented coordinate system it is the Y-Value of the lower right corner. In a geodetic oriented coordinate system it is the X-Value of the lower right corner.
