How do I import multiple surfaces (.vis files generated by Jaguar or SiteMap) and associate them with a structure?

Normally, you can simply import the structure and the surfaces are imported as well. The file that associates structures with surfaces (the .smap file) is automatically created by SiteMap and by Jaguar, so you should not need to do anything special unless you have surfaces from an older release or for some reason the file is missing.

If the surfaces are not automatically imported into Maestro when you import the structure, you can import the surfaces in the Project Table panel (Table → Import → Surface) or the Manage Surfaces panel (click Import), and associate each surface with the appropriate project entry when prompted.

Otherwise, you can create or recreate the structure.smap file, which has the following format:

# smap version 1.0

This example is given for a SiteMap calculation. When importing structure.mae into Maestro, selecting "Import associated data files" loads the structure and the surfaces at the same time.
