Figure 24. Process for Changing IMSMANG Map Symbology
{{note|* Back up any customised map files including any font files (.TTF), style files (.STYLE) and .MXD files, particularly the imsma.mxd file. IMSMANG does not automatically back up customised files.
* Any problems caused by incorrectly configured map customisations can be corrected by replacing the imsma.mxd file from the original installation and reimporting the map.
* All map changes, including symbology customisations and .MXD changes, affect only the client on which they are applied. To propagate these changes to other clients on the server, the customised files must be copied to each client installation and the map reimported.
* Coordinate systems added via the Coordinate System manager are available to all users connecting to the IMSMANG server. If customised .PRJ files are used, information managers must copy these files to each client to ensure the accurate display of coordinates in the new system.
* Limiting the available coordinate systems within IMSMANG, for example, one or two UTM zones and a national system, simplifies coordinate data entry and visualisation}}
{{note| To add, change, or remove coordinate systems, you must have the Reference System Manager permission}}
The coordinate systems displayed in IMSMA are managed using the Coordinate System List window. The available coordinate systems are from ESRI. IMSMA does not support custom coordinate systems at this time.
To access the Coordinate System List window:
1. From the Map menu, select Coordinate System.
The Coordinate System List window displays (Figure 175).
