Below you can find also short mini video guides which are dedicated to particular tasks within the app.
How to prepare a simple survey – Attribute Sets allow user to define predefined lists of values or create field of type “barcode”. List of values are then converted to the drop-down list or multi selection list on the “Add/Edit Feature” screen.
Attributes can be organised in attribute sets. They are defined once and can be used by multiple layers and fields, allowing you to pick predefined values from the drop-down lists. Each attribute set should contain one or more attribute set fields. Also each field must contain some values unless the field is a type of “barcode”. please see the video below to better understand how the link between the layer’s field and attribute set field works.
If you need to include field of type “date” or “date-time” – just add the field of that type to the layer. Similarly if you want to have simple “Yes/No” drop-down list on the entry form – please add field of type Boolean to the layer.
Applying Styles – Rendering features using styles applied to field values.
There are 2 ways of defining the style for map objects in Mapit Spatial:
- Default symbology for the layer can be set in Layer Management – in this case all the geometries on the map will be rendered using the colour scheme defined in layer properties.
- Symbology based on the field value – different features in the same layer can have multiple styles defined and derived from the field value.
The method 1 above has been described in details in Layer Management Section of the user guide and the video below demonstrates the method 2.
NOTE: This kind of styling is available from application version 2.0.0
