Any floorplan in PDF, JPEG, or PNG format can be uploaded and scaled into Social Tables, including Google Map images! There are two options to upload a floorplan:
To upload a floorplan from your account's Event Space Library, first select Settings from your New Home Page. From Settings select Event Space Library then click on New Event Space
Once a file has been uploaded, you will want to ensure it is properly scaled.
Remember to click Save to save your changes!
You can also Crop your uploaded file, when necessary.
The following video walks you through this process:
To upload a floorplan from within a Diagram Event, add a new Room to an Event, from the Rooms section of the left panel.
The floorplan is now added to the Diagram event, but you're not quite finished yet! The floorplan still needs to be Scaled...
Once the Floorplan has been uploaded, it must be scaled properly to ensure the space is accurately represented on the diagram. Use the Scale tool to scale the floorplan:
As long as the file itself was originally to-scale, the diagram will be to-scale in Social Tables as well!
Once a floorplan has been scaled from within a Diagram event, that scale will be saved and apply to the floorplan when it is added from the Venue Library into future events.
Uploading and scaling an image from Google Maps or Google Earth is fun and easy. Follow the previously outlined steps and you'll be on the road to success in no time. Remember to use the scale bar in the bottom right corner of the Google Maps image for the most accurate scaling experience.
