Edit Project General Legend Overview Projectview

Themes are similar to topics. They are used to group feature classes according to a logical relationship. Feature classes in GeoMedia Smart Client may only be used by the client if they are assigned to a theme. For example you create a theme named Infrastructure. Then you can for example assign features like streets, churches and so on to this theme. If you start GeoMedia Smart Client you can see the themes you have created in the administrator in your legend and if some features are assigned to the themes you can open the themes and then see all the assigned features.

Click on the tab Legend to define your themes in the legend.
