Set the Location
Setting your project’s location in the world is important for the accuracy of down-stream analyses. It also allows you to import a scaled satellite image to use as a background reference. This is an ideal first step on almost every FormIt project.
Click the Location Icon from the toolbar
Search for Farnsworth House in the Google Maps search bar
Click Import Satellite Image to set the location and define the satellite image crop
Click Import satellite image and then Finish Importing Image button
The Satellite image is imported to real world scale with true North facing up
Go to the Visual Styles Palette, choose the Environment tab, and enable North Arrow to see a north arrow compass. You can also type DN keyboard shortcut to toggle the North arrow on and off
Finally select the satellite image by double clicking it. Click the Properties Palette and lower the transparency slider about 1/3.
