To work with plots, follow these steps:
- Plot-enable the industry model, view the plot feature classes, and specify plot settings.
- Use Infrastructure Map Server to create plot templates. See "Creating Plot Templates" in the User's Guide.
- Use display models to style the plot features such as north arrow, legend, scale bar.
- Use Infrastructure Map Server to create and print the plots. See "Working With Plots" in the User's Guide.
Creating Plot Display Models
Autodesk provides a sample plot display model in the folder <default display model repository>\Extensions\Plot. Enhance the sample display model for your own purposes.
Style the following plot features. The features are shown in the order in which they appear in the view. For example, the is drawn in front of the layers lower down.
|Feature class ||Description |
| PLT_PLOT_TBL. Label feature class that stores labels. |
Define thematic rules that use the LABEL_DEF_ID to style different labels for different types of labels, such as plot name, or plot scale.
| PLT_PLOT_DECORATION_TEXT. Point feature class that stores the static text. Loads as annotation layer. |
|PLT_PLOT_NA. Point feature class that stores the north arrow. Style the point using a north arrow symbol. |
| PLT_PLOT_SCALEBAR. Point feature class. |
|PLT_PLOT_LEGEND. Point feature class. Style the point using a block that represents the legend. |
| PLT_PLOT_IMAGE. Point feature class. |
| PLT_PLOT_DECORATION_TBL. Label feature class. |
| PLT_PLOT_DECORATION. Collection feature class. |
|PLT_PLOT_GRID_FRAME. Line feature class. |
