Here you can set a default value for transformation. This is used as a default transformation for displaying of a map, 3D globe and Web map services (WMTS, TileJSON and XYZ).
Here you assign a location to a scan and overlay it on top of a modern map. Help us to give these maps a new life! It is a simple process.
