 +====== GIS-Files ======
 +With the poweruser-version QV can now read many GIS-file formats and display it as maps. The settings like colour and filling of the map-objects can be adjusted comfortable. Normally you have complete notices concerning projection and coordinate system, so these maps don´t need to be calibrated in QV. 
 +GIS-files are imported by the map-import-assistent,​ when you choose the option **Gis-Files**. Please look at chapter [[en:​35_maps:​d_import|New maps import]].
 +In QV the maps are as all other maps available in 2D or 3D modus and with various functions.
 +But there are also some added functions, which are not possible with normal maps.
 +==== Style ====
 +In an opened map you will see in the style-dialogue of a GIS-map another tab **GIS**:
 +By a double click on a lyyer another dialogue with many different setting options opens.
 +All options of this dialogue, for example the presentation of colours and other presentation parameters, also dependend from data base values, are explained in detail [[http://​​files5/​gis_properties.pdf|PDF-Dokument]]. You will find it also in QuoVadis 6-program list as Gis_Properties.pdf.
 +==== Layer ====
 +After you have imported a GIS-file as a map, it exist first a layer.
 +You can add more files  by clicking on **Layer add** , which appear then each as additional layers. ​
 +For exampel, when you have different SHP-files, which you want to present all together in one map in QV, then start by importing the first SHP as a new map. Then please open this map and add other SHP-files there.
 +This approach replaces the in Q4 well-known QVP or QVC-projects.
 +By **Layer delete** you will delete a layer of the map. The file on the disk will be preserved.
 +==== Data Base -Infos ====
 +Many GIS-files contain database-information of several geometry-elements,​ for example for SHP-files they are available as dBase-file (dbf). Please click on the button database infos to open a window, which contains all database-infos of this map.
 +You can let this window open, also when you close the style-dialogue. You can sort the list and jump to the particular object by double click onto a line in the map.
 +When the display of tooltips is activated, you will be displayed in the tooltip the database-info to this object where the mouse is. Additionally this obkect is displayed in the database-table,​ when you click on in the map.
 +==== Export in Drawing ====
 +A GIS-map can not be edited in QV. When you like to change it, you can transfer it in Drawing. Therefore please copy the map in a drawing table in the Xplorer. The geometry and the actual defined colours are transferred,​ but not the extended database-information.
