The Legend entries are represented in a multi-level, hierarchical, directory tree. Individual categories can be folded up or down either by clicking prefixed arrow icons or by double clicking on the name.
The Plus and Minus buttons in the legend header enable you to fold down or expand the main categories.
The properties of a legend entry can be identified by its prefixed icon and its font color. These properties include whether a feature is hidden/visible, analyzable, active/inactive, scale-dependent, and within scale range.
The style of the prefixed icon depends on the geometry type and on the above mentioned legend entry properties. The following table gives an overview of the deployed icons, depending on the geometry type:
Thematic legend entries
Thematic legend entries are displayed using a color gradient:
In the legend thematic entries can be set to visible or invisible, independently of the feature's visibility. To turn on or off the visibility right click on the entry and click Hide.
Database Driven Symbology
If a symbolization is done based on database attributes (for example linewidth and linecolor), GeoMedia Smart Client now shows a "thematic" entry () to note that this feature has different style settings.
The properties of a legend entry can also be recognized by their font colors. The following figure gives an overview of the corresponding colors:
|Hidden feature(s)||Visible feature(s)||Active feature(s)|
When a feature class or working level is visible, it means that the corresponding features are displayed on the map. In order to set a feature class to be visible, right click on the respective legend entry and then click Display feature class(es). Whether a feature class is actually visible also depends on the scale dependency (see below).
To Hide a feature class/working level, right click on the respective legend entry and then click Hide feature class(es). Feature classes/working levels can also be set active/inactive. An active feature class enables you to perform queries on respective features and gives you the ability to plot working levels. To set a feature class active/inactive, right click on the respective legend entry and then click Set active/Set inactive, respectively.
You can set all active feature classes to be invisible by clicking Hides all non-active featureclasses, which is located in the legend header next to the minus button.
When clicking on the rightmost button next to the legend header, you can undo the action and the legend will be rebuilt to the state before the hide-all action was executed.
Legend entries are shown in a map scale of between 1:1 and 1:1.000.000.000 as the default. To provide for improved legibility, you can limit the range with GeoMedia Smart Client Administrator. For example, parcels of land are only shown from 1:500 to 1:10.000, even if the user has set an unhidden map scale of 1:20.000.
Whether a feature class is scale dependent or not can be specified by right clicking on the respective legend entry and then by clicking Enable scale dependancy/Disable scale dependancy, respectively.
There are two icons which are relevant for scale dependency:
A way to adjust the map scale is to use the Quick Zoom dialog box. Right click on a legend entry and hover the mouse over Quick Zoom. Then depress the left mouse button to adjust the slider to the requisite position, and click Apply in the dialog box:
Reload a Feature Class
When reloading a feature class, the geometry and attributive data and the feature class settings are updated by downloading the data from the application server afresh. To reload a feature class, right click on the respective legend entry and then click on Reload.
You can move feature classes either to the foreground or to the background in terms of their display order on the map. To accomplish this, right click on the respective feature class and then click To foreground or To background, respectively.
You can specify the level of opacity of a feature class for both raster and vector feature classes. Right click on the respective feature class and then hover the mouse over Opacity. Then depress the left mouse button to adjust the slider to the desired percent value, and click Apply to put it in execution:
A value of 100% indicates complete coverage of the feature in a feature class, whereas a value of 1-99% indicates that the respective features are transparent to some degree.
|100% (complete coverage)||70% translucency||30% translucency|
You can obtain general information on each feature class or working level by right clicking on the respective legend entry and then by clicking Properties. The Featureclass information window opens:
The Featureclass information window contains the following entries:
|Featureclass-ID||Unique identifier of the feature class||0 - Infinity|
|Featureclass-Right||Right of a featureclass
||ANALYZE, VISIBLE, MODIFYABLE|
|Display Position||Specification of the display position on the map. The higher the value, the
higher the display rank on the map.
|0 - Infinity|
|Tiling (rows x columns)||Resolution, size of a single tile||15 x 12|
|Source Project||Name of the project||[Project name]|
|Featureloader||Identifier of the feature loader (Cache, Live, Caching on demand)||for example,: com.intergraph.web.core.data.loader.CacheDataLoader|
|Last update||Time when the feature class was last updated||[Date Time]|
|Geometry type||The Geometry type of the feature||AREA, LINE, POINT, TEXT, RASTER, GEOMETRY_COLLECTION|
|Featureclass boundaries||Bounding box of the feature class; x0, y0 are the coordinates of the lower-left corners, whereas x1,y1 corresponds the upper-right corners.||[x0,y0,x1,y1]|
|Active||Is the feature class active or inactive?||Yes/No|
|Loaded||Is the geospatial data for the feature class loaded in the current map extract?||Yes/No|
|Visible||Is the feature class displayed on the map?||Yes/No|
|Maximum/Minimum Scale||Scale range in which the feature class is currently visible.||1 - Infinity|
|Out-of-range||The current map scale lies outside the current range?||Yes/No|
|Cached||Is data cached on the client?||Yes/No|
|Path for the cache||Directory where the data is cached.||[DirectoryPath]|
|Cache-Size||Size of the data stored in the cache directory||[Digital Units]|
|StyleID's||Identifier of the style class.||[GUID]|
You can also take a look at the cache directory of the feature class by clicking Open cache directory. The folder shows the cached data, such as geometry files or feature class settings.
