Repositioning Images and Locations


When contouring in ChemPoint, you have the option of drawing the contours over a background image file. Typically, the background image would be an aerial photograph of the facility. Background images have the following characteristics:

  • The image must be a Windows Bitmap file
  • They can be resized in ChemPoint using the Contour Image Zoom dialog
  • The image can be repositioned below the contours.
