Then, to export the displayed map view:

  • Click on the “Main menu icon and select “Print map;
  • Optionally, type a name for the exported image and click on “Ok;
  • Once saved, the exported image will be displayed. Click on “Open to display it in your favorite image viewer, on “Share to upload it online or to “Ok to close the displayed image.
