Get started with INSROP GIS

Starting INSROP GIS

INSROP GIS is started by double-clicking the ArcView shortcut icon on the desktop or via the Start. After ArcView is activated you must click on the File menu in the Project Window and select Extensions. This will bring up a list of available ArcView extensions. Click on the frame in front of the INSROP GIS Extension (putting a checkmark there) to load it. If you load a project saved when INSROP GIS was loaded the INSROP GIS Extension loads automatically.

Creating, opening or saving a project

When starting ArcView, a new project (called Untitled) is "created". If you want to work on an existing project, you must select Open Project or Open INSROP Project from the File menu in the Project window, or press the Open INSROP Project-button in the Project button bar. The difference between these options is that the Open INSROP Project option, as default, enables choosing project files from <NSR_PATH>\PROJECTS folder, while the Open Project option, as default, enables choosing project files from the current working folder.

To save a project with its current name, you have three options (which are available in all ArcView windows):

i. Choose Save Project in the File menu.

ii. Type Ctrl+S as a shortcut for the Save Project menu choice.

iii. Press the Save Project button (The leftmost button in each button bar)

To save a project with a new name, you must make the Project window active, and choose the Save Project As... menu choice in the File menu.
