Atlas format: Paper Atlas(PNG)

Postby Toni » 30 Sep 2016, 11:12

I wish to know if it's possible to see how many pages will be printed before I push the button "Creat Atlas".
Sometimes after created a map in png format I surprised how many pages are created. I will only print 1 page. I know that this depends from the area I have select.

There is no preview for the PaperAtlas output format.

However you can estimate the size by the number of tiles. In the "Atlas Content" tree place the mouse pointer on a map and wait for the tooltip.
At the end you will find the information "Maximum tiles to download". A typical A4 PDF page has space for about 12-16 tiles.

BTW: The size of the map is indeed directly related to the selected region. However the selected zoom level has an even more impact. For PaperAtlas you should only select a zoom level one higher than the current map zoom.
Please read the MOBAC FAQ and MOBAC README before posting.

Thank you r_x for your answer.
I have found another way to get wat I want. To get only one Image I have found this way:
3.Paper Atlas
4.Size: Selection
After creat the map in only one image in png format you can work with another software to change de format like JPG and/or cut if you like a part of the map. Needless to say that a large zoom has an image as large result in MB !
Thats all. I hope it can help other Members.
