Import Images onto Map View (Culture)

Licence boundaries, topography maps or local geological maps.  Load and display any image file directly to the Map View.  Impress your clients by using image data to build a detailed picture of your geological region. In this workflow, we’ll import images directly onto a time slice in the Map View.

Tip: Insight supports multiple image formats, such as png/jpg/bmp/tif/tiff.
