Create new data views

Parcel and property information have always been the primary “data view” for which detailed attributes were displayed and upon which all other data was aligned in the MapGeo Platform. Data Views video demo (5 min)

The next version of MapGeo will allow you to create alternative and distinct “data views” that can be centered on other types of geographic features (points, lines or polygons) and their attributes. For example, you can create data views for storm and sewer systems, parks and recreation facilities, bike paths or walking trails, school districts, historic sites, …, even boat moorings as shown below.

With the new MapGeo, you can create as many data views as you want and easily toggle between them, giving your team access to the diversity of detailed information they need to do their jobs, all from your familiar MapGeo application.

Mooring management with MapGeo data views

Let’s explore the concept of new configurable data views by looking at a real world example.

For those coastal communities with healthy boating populations, Mooring data management and communication can be challenging. Just seeing the mooring points on MapGeo wasn’t enough to help answer the questions of Mooring owners, the public at large, and the harbormaster.

By creating a data view for moorings in MapGeo, for example, the Town of Manchester empowers users to conduct filtered searches on moorings data attributes, view associated data in detail, and perform key tasks, such as check the inspection status, locate those public moorings that accommodate their vessel size, or list the official latitude and longitude of a moorings so any significant movements or unregistered moorings can be flagged.

New and advanced search methods

We all want to spend less time looking through search results and more time working with the right results.

MapGeo Advanced Search

Quick search

The new MapGeo has a Quick Search feature that can be configured to search simultaneously against multiple fields that you choose. We also made the quick search window more visible so you can start your search quickly. These configuration options are available via the MapGeo Dashboard.

Advanced Search

MapGeo’s new Advanced Search functionality creates more options for adding search terms and presenting results. MapGeo managers will now have the opportunity to:

  • Include a variety of different search fields based on your data

  • Use geography (e.g., spatial bounding areas) to control the search

  • Set value ranges to narrow the search, e.g., total value or year sold

These new Advanced Search features will help you search faster and more effectively.

Improvements to the MapGeo experience

To make MapGeo even more useful to experienced and new users, we have:

  • Reduced the amount of screen area dedicated to control panels to allow more data presentation

  • Increased the prominence of frequently used features

  • Added a history or “go Back” button that tracks the most recent features selection

  • Grouped tools more intuitively

More space for data presentation

MapGeo detail panel layout

MapGeo now has a new data panel layout that sits below the map. Users will now have access to a data panel with different data tabs, each of which presents collapsible groups of data fields. MapGeo administrators can configure the tabs and grouping of data presented.
