¹Requires a document-formatted attribute field which cannot be created in XMap Professional. However if a layer with an existing document field is transferred by an Editor or Enterprise user, documents can be uploaded, opened and edited in XMap Professional.

²Queries cannot be created using XMap Professional however if an Openspace layer is synchronized or manually transferred from the Editor or Enterprise versions, the query can be run in XMap Professional. The XMap Professional user can type the search criteria for the query if the query is designated as “User Input."

³Users can access forms only if one of the following conditions is true:
• The database is local (including a sync database)
• The database is Enterprise

4Use of the forms is limited to the applications capabilities, which means the following:
• Pro users can only open forms
• All other users can open and create forms

5Editing of synchronized layers is only available when using XMap Forms.

6Redlining tools are automatically enabled for all synchronized layers.

7Seamless worldwide topographic dataset is available for an additional cost.

8XMap Professional includes a 2-point image registration tool.

9XMap GIS Editor and Enterprise include multi-point image registration with rubber-sheeting, clipping, and transparency tools.
