Feature Class Template
  • Use the Feature Classes page to configure the dataset/layer that will contain the collected mapping features from the mobile field app.
  • Geolantis.360 offers a variety of standard feature class templates that can be used for surface and subsurface utility mapping.
  • Based on the purpose of the mapping project, certain feature class can be selected in the mobile field app to start mapping features.
For example:

The feature class „Street Light“ should be selected for mapping the location of street light poles

The feature class „Street Lightning Cable“ should be selected for mapping the subsurface street lightning power cable¹

Configuring Feature Class Custom Attributes

Geolantis.360 provides special attributes customization for each feature class, that will be required as additional information in the field app when mapping features into a particular feature class.

  1. Set up customized feature class attributes as follows:
  2. Go to Feature Classes page

  4. Click Edit to configure existing feature class
  5. Switch to „Attributes“ tab
  6. Add and organize attribute values
  7. Configure attribute General settings
  8. Configure attribute Visibility options
