UrbanFootprint features two options for exporting maps:

  • Map Snapshot Tool: Click the camera icon to quickly export just the map (no size configurations, no legend).
  • Map Layout Tool: Click the Export button to set scale, orientation, page/image size, image quality, and whether to include a legend.

Map Snapshot Tool

Use the Map Snapshot tool (the camera icon) to take a screenshot of the map as it appears in your browser. Taking a Snapshot will download a file named urbanfootprint-map.png. Image resolution will be the same as your laptop screen or monitor.  

Map Layout Tool

The Map Layout Tool provides more control over the image export. 

Map layout options 

Scale: Choose between common map scales or type in the specific scale you need.

Orientation: Choose between portrait or landscape.

Page: Choose desired print or image size.

Image Quality: Select desired print or screen resolution.

Include Base Map: Choose whether to include the base map in the exported map.

Legend options

Legend Placement: Choose between:

  • no legend
  • place the legend on the page
  • export the legend as a separate image file

Layers to Include In the Legend: Only layers that are checked on in the Explore Mode layer list will appear in the map layout window. Uncheck any layers that you want to exclude from the legend export (the layers will remain visible on the map, but will not appear in the legend). 

You can add a title to your map by typing in the Title field. Turn the title on/off using the toggle button.

Include/exclude the north arrow and/or scale bar on the map by clicking the toggles.
