Enter Geospatial Data in the Data Entry Form
|You have to specify the Coordinate System and Coordinate Format you would like to use before starting to enter the geospatial data.|
There are several options to enter geospatial data into IMSMANG:
The interface to enter geospatial data manually or by drawing on the map consists of two tables: a Points table, and a Polygon and Polyline Points table.
Point and Polygon/Polyline List Window
The difference between the columns X / Lon & Y / Lat and X / Longitude & Y / Latitude is described here.
After you have entered the polygon/polyline points, IMSMANG displays the total calculated area size and line length of the polygons and/or polylines.
Which point type should be used depends on:
- if is it a single point;
- if is it a point that is part of a polygon / polyline;
- the type of contamination.
Point types used for recording of areas are of two main types;
- single points;
- part of the polygon.
More information on point types is available here.
Completion Report with 2 polygons
Poly Property is used for being able to distinguish between polylines and polygons in Map Pane. Example: in a Completion Report (Type of Activity) with Status Completed there are two polygons:
- one cleared with MDD asset
- one cleared with Mechanical asset.
Preview Geospatial Data
You can also preview geospatial data:
Point and Polygon/Polyline List Preview window
|More functions have been added to the Preview window. It amongst other things possible to add labels. It is also possible to change the order of the themes.|
