This page covers the basics in generating a Paradigm within Surety®.
A Paradigm is a shortcut of sorts to quickly send 1 or more different maps using a selected or drawn boundary on the map or within the Form Manager to the Dossier Studio.






View the basic tutorial video for generating a paradigm with a selected or drawn border.



Generate a Paradigm using selected or drawn boundaries.

First we will start with the basic steps of adding multiple reports/maps to the Dossier by using a drawing on the map and one of the default Paradigm options.



Start by drawing or selecting your boundary and clicking the Paradigm link underneath the Favorites link.

Image

The pop-up contains a list of different Paradigms to choose from. Every Surety Pro subscription has a list options available to them that are already setup. This is also where any custom Paradigms would appear if setup by the company administrator. 



The top 2 options are: 
  • FSA + Soils  (FSA Map and Soils Map)
  • FSA + Soils + Topo (FSA Map, Soils Map, and Topography Map)
  •  



These can be used with any type of boundary selection whether it is a drawn or selected border on the map or a selection made in the Form Manager.  

Image

The next 4 items are strictly for use with selections made within the Form Manager.



  • Form Manager View + Saved Form
  • Form Manager View + Saved Form + FSA map
  • Form Manager View + Saved Form + FSA + Soil + Topo
  • Saved Form



For more information on how to use them, visit the Creating Paradigms from the Form Manager page.



Once you have clicked on one of the top two Paradigms, the Dossier Studio will open in either a new window or a new tab depending on your specific browser settings.

Image

In the left hand panel of the Dossier, the Table of Contents is located with each of the map/forms listed. Click on any of them to load it in the main center panel.

Image

It is possible to add more maps to the dossier while still keeping the ones already in there. Without closing the Dossier tab or window, click back to the "Surety Mapping System" tab. 

Image

Select or draw the next boundary and then click on the Paradigm link again to open up the list of Paradigms that you can generate for this new boundary. 

Image

Again, select your desired Paradigm

Image

This time the Dossier Studio will not automatically open as you should still have it opened up in a background tab or window. Find and open the Dossier Studio. 

Image

You will notice that there will now be another set of maps listed in the Table Of Contents. 

Image

Rearrange any of the maps in the Table of Contents by clicking and dragging them up or down in the list. 

Image

Click on the Map name to edit the title of it. Hit enter on your keyboard to apply the change.

Image

This will also update the title on the Map itself for all read-only maps (FSA Map, Soils Map, Topography Map, etc.) as well as on the "Aerial" and "Aerial with GPA" application forms.

Image

Once you have added all of the maps that you want, you can add an Overview Map to show all the maps boundaries on one map.



Click the down arrow above the Table of Contents and click Add Overview Page

Image

The Add Overview Map option page will open allowing the choice of which type of map to display all of the borders on. To create a map that will automatically remove the background imagery to clearly show the relation of the different borders, you can choose the OverView Map from the Map drop down.

Image

Type in a whole number to add a buffer extent to the map then click insert map.
 Note: if picking a different map such as the FSA Map from the Map drop down, you can determine which individual layers will show on the map.

Image

The Overview Map will be placed at the bottom of the Table of Contents and will display all of the boundaries that were contained in the rest of the maps added to the Dossier.

Image

From here these specific maps can be saved in this state by clicking on the File  drop down in the Menu and then click Save Dossier.  

Image

Give a name for this specific Dossier and click Save  

Image
 



To Save or Print these Maps, click Export from the drop down menu and then choose To PDF. Once clicked it will be placed in your downloads folder or your browser will prompt you to save or open the file.
