The Summary window displays the updated combined data for an item. This includes Data Entry Forms, geospatial data, associated attachments, and related item records.

There are several different ways to open the Summary windows:

  • Double-click the item row from the IMSMA Navigation window’s items pane.
  • Select the symbol in the Map Pane so that a blue circle displays on the symbol. Once the blue circle is displayed on the symbol, double-click the symbol in the Map Pane.
  • Select the symbol in the Map Pane or the item row in the items pane and click the Identify Selection button. From the Identify Selection window, select the item record and click the Summary button.

The attributes displayed in the Summary window for each item are possible to be customised. The Summary windows consists of different areas:

Data area - Geospatial tab

The Geographical data widget which is used in both Data Entry Forms and Summary windows is possible to customise. It is possible to show the coordinates in two different formats:

  • latitude/longitude a.k.a. storage format
  • the coordinate system and format the user used when entering the data.

Example of the same point entered with 4 different coordinate system

In this example the user used

  • WGS 1984 Decimal degrees for Point 1
  • WGS 1984 Degrees minutes seconds for Point 2
  • UTM for Point 3
  • MRGS for Point 4
  • Distance/Bearing for Point 5

The X and Y values that the user entered for Point 1 - 3 are shown in the two columns; X / Lon and Y / Lat.
When distance/bearing is used the column From shows from which point they were measured.
The two columns X / Longitude and Y / Latitude shows the calculated latitude/longitude.

When IMSMANG shows the items in the Map pane the calculated latitude/longitude are used.
