Display hatching (lines or points)

Post 12 of 41

Rather than creating a simple color filling, you can display hatchings (lines or points) on the maps you create with C&D.

You can realize it thanks to the filling module. Once you have completed a “simple” color filling, double click on the filling module to access account parameters.

First, you can change the color of the filling with a left click on the colored squares:

To access hatching parameters, right click on the colored squares:

Tick the top left box to use hatching. You can change hatching properties (angles of lines) by clicking on a corner or by moving the example line.

You can also change spacing between the lines and lines thickness.

IIf you want to create a hatching effect with points, parameters are quite similar. You will just have to click on the second tab, “Points”. From this window, you can define points alignment, spacing and diameter.

If your filling module is connected to a qualitative data module, you can choose independent hatching types (lines and points) for each type of data:

If your filling module is connected to a continuous data module, you can choose one hatching type (points or lines) by setting parameters for the first and the last squares. If you choose different angles and thickness between the first and the last squares, C&D will automatically calculate the transition:

This hatching functionality enables to overlay two distinct information details on one single map.
