We will frequently get asked how we actually stitch the phase maps together, how the lot lines get added on, and how it all comes together in LotWorks. Below is a sample run-through of this process:
Overview Map and Phase Maps
First, the land developer sends us the PDFs of the community plan and any active phases. It's important to receive the overall community plan so that the phase plans can be properly lined up.
If there are any design changes you’d like to see, you can include a separate version with mark-up, something like the below image. Alternately, let us know what you'd like included, and what you'd like excluded from your marketing maps.
Our Maps designer will implement some best practice alterations (removing borders and titles, moving logos, and adding shadow/blending to the map) if no specific instructions are provided.
First we'll produce a geo-referenced guideline image from your lot polygons (Shapefile). This lets us place the lots on your LotWorks Map, and tie the lots to the database details.
Then, we'll overlay the community plan on the guideline image by matching up lot lines.
Finally, we'll cut out the lot details from the phase marketing plan and lay them over the community map:
With everything carefully aligned and tiled, the final image looks something like this:
And when it's all put together on LotWorks:
