GeoMedia 6.1's new Export Layout to GeoTiff command

There is a new hot fix out.for GeoMedia and GeoMedia Professional 6.1. One of the new enhancement available in the hot fix is the ability to export the Layout window into a GeoTiff file. I tried out the new Export Layout to GeoTiff command with one of the sample GeoWorkspace files that has some Layouts defined. Here is how it works.
  1. Startup GeoMedia or GeoMedia Professional and open up a GeoWorkspace e.g. BatchPlotting.gws.

    The workspace is displayed in GeoMedia.

    Note: The red rectangle is approximately the area covered by the layout window.

  2. Select Window > Show Layout Window.

    The Layout Window appears.

  3. Select Sheets > Export Layout.

    The Export Layout Sheet As dialog box appears.

    Note: if you click the Save as type drop down list, you can see the new GeoTiff option.

  4. In the File name field, type in the name of the new file, e.g. south_hsv.tif. Choose Georeferenced TIFF - GeoTIFF (*.tif) in the Save as type field. Click Save.

    The GeoTIFF Export Options dialog box appears.
  5. Change the File resolution to your desired value. Click OK.

    The layout is exported to a GeoTIFF file.
I displayed the resultant layout GeoTIFF file in Global Mapper 10 successfully. The results can be seen in the screenshot below. I overlay the County boundary for reference and we can see that the layout GeoTIFF image sits correctly with respect to the County boundary; compare that with the red rectangle location in the first screenshot at the top.
