What file types are supported for background layers for the standalone platform for the water or storm-sewer products?
Backgrounds can be added using the Background Layers manager, from View > Drawing Views > Backgrounds
Starting with CONNECT Edition Update 1, Bing Maps can also be added directly in the Background Layers manager: How to add background aerial and road map images to your model
Some image formats support associated world files, starting with the CONNECT Edition release. When attaching a background image file that has an associated world file present, the image will now be spatially located automatically (ie. georeferenced).
Currently the following file formats support an associated world file:
The World file extension is based on the image's extension. One convention is to use the first and last letter of the image's extension and add a "w" (eg. .jpg>.jgw). Another convention is to append the image's extension with a "w" (eg. .jpg, .jpgw).
When opening the file, the Image Properties dialog will automatically enter the coordinates from the World file in the editable (Drawing) fields.
