Geo

The Geo Element enables the creation and management of geospatial information related to an Entry.

The following concepts are important for understanding the Geo Element.

Geo Types

Three types of geographic information can be created and managed:

  • Point(s): A latitude/longitude pair that identifies a specific location on the globe.
  • Path(s): A series of latitude/longitude pairs that identify paths or routes on the globe.
  • Polygon(s): A series of latitude/longitude pairs that create a closed area on the globe.

For example, a Hotel location may use a Point to indicate its location while a trail along the edge of a lake would use a Path.

Geo Feature Types

Used to specify the characteristics of various Geo Types.

For example, while a Geo Element may have several Points and Paths, those Points and Paths can be distinguished by using Geo Feature Types. One Path could be assigned the Geo Feature Type of "Dirt Trail" while another Path could be assigned the Geo Feature Type "Paved Trail."

Geo Features

Every entry within a Geo Element is called a Geo Feature. A Geo Feature is made up of the following:

  • Geo Type (Point, Path or Polygon)

  • Geo Feature Type (Dirt Trail, Paved Trail, Gazebo, etc.)

  • Note for that Geo Feature (A text entry that can be used to name the Geo Feature)

For example, a Geo Feature for a trail within a Geo Element would include this information: Geo Type: Path Geo Feature Type: Dirt Trail Note: Pine Lake Trail Together, this information is considered a Geo Feature.

Geo Layers

Geo Layers are optional, but can be important for the presentation of geographical information in conjunction with ESRI map layers.
