Use map backgrounds

Map backgrounds allow you to arrange nodes in NTM to the fit layout of your network. Backgrounds should show network locations and not include Network nodes or connections. NTM nodes and connections overlay backgrounds. You have two sample map backgrounds available in NTM. These backgrounds are meant to demonstrate how map backgrounds look. They are not specific to any actual network.

  • Map background files must be gif, jpeg, jpg, or PNG format.
  • For best fit and resolution files should be 1600 X 1024 at 72 DPI.
  • Background files are stored in \Documents and Settings\{user_name}\My Documents\My Pictures\Network Topology Mapper Backgrounds.

Import and apply a new map background file or apply an existing background

  1. Click Edit > Background picture import….
