Note.jpg The .mxd of the map file and corresponding shapefiles should be located on a local drive on your computer. The .mxd should have a unique name and have never been imported into IMSMANG before. Recommended size of the file should not exceed 2 GB. If you would need a clean background map then you may download it from Downloads.

To import a base map into IMSMANG:

  1. In the File menu → ImportMap.
