Blue.pngThe sections marked with an asterisk (*) are mandatory for setting up a new project. If the fields are empty, the creation of a new project will fail with an error message.


Click New Project on the leftside panel to start creating a new project. The following form will be shown in the main panel.

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.


Blue.pngClick Add cs.png to add a new coordinate system.


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.
Blue.pngClick Add cs.png to add a new coordinate system.


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.
From existing project GMSC 2014 Allows you to take over the Project Area of an existing project.
Blue.pngGets only enabled if there is an existing project with the same Project CS as your newly created one.
