					Export Ribbon

The Export Ribbon is where you will find all of the buttons that allow you to export data
in Everest GIS. You can use this ribbon to export complete layers or just an image with
only a few clicks of the mouse.

To get to this ribbon, you must click on the Export Tab.




First, let’s look at the Gather Project button. This is good to use when you have project
that contains layer saved in different locations. It will gather all the layers to one location
where you can easily access it and send to co workers.




When you click Gather Project a window will ask if you would like to save the current
project.




Next you will see the Gather Project Window.
In this window you can name your project.




Then type in the direct path where you would like to save or click on the browse button.




If you check this box then Everest will zip and e mail.




Once finished, click on ok and the project will then be gathered to the path that you
designated.


Next is the Export Map to Image button. Clicking on this button will let you save the
image that is on the current map view.
Once you click on this button, you’ll be prompted to save the image. Save the file where
you can access them later. The file then can be added to the map as an image.




Export Map Image to Clipboard will take the image on the map and copy it to the
clipboard. This will allow you to easily paste the map into word.
Export Map Image to Google Earth is a wonderful feature that will let you take the map
image that you see in Everest and export it into Google Earth.
Clicking on Export Map to EPJ brings up a window that will prompt you to save. This
will save the map as a EPJ.




Export Selected to EFF will export the selected features to a new EFF layer.




Using this button will only export selected features, so first select the features you would
like to export.
Once you have the features selected you can click on the export selected features to EFF.
You will now see a window for the Export to EFF wizard.




In this window you must first specify a path or a place to save the new file. You can
accomplish this either by typing in the direct path that you would like to save in the
designed area or by selecting the browse button. Once you have designed a place to save
click on the next button to continue to the next window or click the cancel button to exit
the wizard. [Note: you may click on cancel any time during the wizard to cancel the
wizard.]
Next is the Coordinates window. In this window you will choose what coordinate system
you will use for this window. This window will default to Longitude/Latitude Coordinate
System with a WGS84 Datum. If you are not sure which coordinate system you need to
use, then you should leave it at this coordinate system. If you know the exact coordinate
system, datum, and zone you need to use then you can use the drop downs to navigate to
the correct one. You can choose from some standard coordinate systems such as
Longitude/Latitude, State Plane, and Universal Transverse Mercator Coordinate Systems.
The datum’s to choose from are WGS84, NAD 83, and NAD 27. Once you have selected
the correct coordinate system the click next to continue.




Now we reach the final window of the wizard. In this window you can choose to have the
layer to be added to the map.
Checking the option to Add as Layer will add the export layer to the map. Click on finish
and the layer will be added.




The layer will then be added to the map and you can see the layer in the layer list area.
Export Selected to SHP will export the features you have selected to a newly created SHP
layer, leaving the original.

First you must select at least one feature.




Once you have some features selected, this window will appear.
In this window you must select what type of feature you have selected. Since I made
these features with the hand draw tool, the polygon option is the only one available. If I
would have made these features using the metes and bounds tool, then I would pick the
Metes and Bounds (converted to polygon) option. Click next to continue or at any time
during the wizard you can click cancel to exit the window.
In this window you must first specify a path or a place to save the new file. You can
accomplish this either by typing in the direct path that you would like to save in the
designed area or by selecting the browse button. Once you have designed a place to save
click on the next button to continue to the next window or click the cancel button to exit
the wizard. [Note: you may click on cancel any time during the wizard to cancel the
wizard.]
Next is the Coordinates window. In this window you will choose what coordinate system
you will use for this window. This window will default to Longitude/Latitude Coordinate
System with a WGS84 Datum. If you are not sure which coordinate system you need to
use, then you should leave it at this coordinate system. If you know the exact coordinate
system, datum, and zone you need to use then you can use the drop downs to navigate to
the correct one. You can choose from some standard coordinate systems such as
Longitude/Latitude, State Plane, and Universal Transverse Mercator Coordinate Systems.
The datum’s to choose from our WGS84, NAD 83, and NAD 27. Once you have selected
the correct coordinate system the click next to continue.
In this next window you must choose what attribute you want to export into the new
layer. The window will contain a list of attributes from the feature being exported. To
bring the attributes over to the new layer make sure the check box is checked next to the
attribute name. If you do not want the attribute then you can uncheck the check box. You
can also right click and choose select all or unselect all.




Now we reach the final window of the wizard. In this window you can choose to have the
layer to be added to the
map.

Checking the option to
Add as Layer will add
the export layer to the
map. Click on finish
and the layer will be
added.
The layer will then be added to the map and you can see the layer in the layer list area.




Merge Layers is a new function of Everest 2.0 that will take two different layers from the
current map and merge them together as one layer.




Clicking on this button will bring up the Merge Layer Window.
Here you will choose which layers to merge together. Click on the checkbox next to the
layer to select that layer. Click on next to continue, or click on cancel to exit the wizard.




Now you must choose where the file is to be saved. You can type in the direct path or
click on the browse button to save the file. Click next to continue, or you can now, at any
time during the wizard click back to go to the previous window.
At the finish window you can choose to add the layer on the current map.




Once you click on finish
you will see the progress
area of the window
display information about
the progress of the merge.
You can see what layer it
is currently working on,
how many features it
contains, and the number
of layers remaining. You
can click on cancel at any
time to cancel the merge.
Once the merge is complete, if you choose to add as a layer, then the merged layers will
be added to the map and it will appear in the layers list area.




The Export Layer to SHP will export a entire layer instead of just selected feature.
Next this window will appear.



                                        In this window you must choose
                                        what types of features are in the
                                        layer you have selected. Since I
                                        created all the features of this
                                        layer with the hand draw tool, the
                                        polygon option is the only one
                                        available. If I would have made
                                        these features using the metes
                                        and bounds tool, then I would
                                        pick the Metes and Bounds
                                        (converted to polygon) option.
                                        Click next to continue or at any
                                        time during the wizard you can
                                        click cancel to exit the window.

bring the attributes over to the new layer make sure the check box is checked next to the
attribute name. If you do not want the attribute then you can uncheck the check box. You
can also right click and choose select all or unselect all.




Now we reach the final window of the wizard. In this window you can choose to have the

The layer will then be added to the map and you can see the layer in the layer list area.




You also have the option of Exporting to EFF layer.




Using this button will export the entire layer.
Click on the export layer to EFF. You will now see a window for the Export to EFF
wizard.




In this window you must first specify a path or a place to save the new file. You can
