2 GeoMedia 6.0 Overview  Additional Themes –CAD Integration –Data Access –Miscellaneous  Main Themes –Enterprise –Map Display –Data Maintenance

3 Enterprise GeoMedia 6.0 enterprise features fall into two main categories:  Simplify GIS workflows  Management of large data sets

4 Enterprise – Simplify GIS Workflows  Simplify GIS Workfows –Libraries share geoworkspace information around the enterprise –Desktop Configuration Utility customise the appearance of the application interface –Categories simplify the presentation of geospatial data to the end-user

5 Enterprise – Simplify GIS Workflows  Libraries –Sharing of GeoWorkspace information GWS Library  Connections  Catalogs  Categories  Queries  Legends  Styles  Spatial filters

6 Enterprise – Simplify GIS Workflows Libraries  Centralized management of GeoWorkspace information that can be set up and distributed by an administrator GWS Library GWS Administrator

7 Enterprise – Simplify GIS Workflows Desktop Configuration  Save menu and toolbar configuration to an xml file  Distribute around the enterprise  Named custom GeoMedia application icons on the desktop

8 Enterprise – Simplify GIS Workflows Categories  Simplify the management of large schemas  Logical view of the physical datamodel –Supports feature classes and queries –A feature class or query can be in more than one category –Categories are hierarchical –Aliasing of feature class and query names –Aliasing of attribute names –Subsetting of attributes –Reordering attributes

9 Enterprise – Simplify GIS Workflows  Summary –Simplify the presentation of the database within the GIS –Hide the complexities of warehouses and data connections. –Simplify geoworkspace setup and management –Configure the user interface for specific workflows

10 Enterprise  Management of Large Data Sets – Legend grouping – Improved spatial filtering – Categories

24 Enterprise – Manage Large Data Sets Spatial Filters  Reference Features –Features that will not be affected by spatial filters –Replace the vicinity connection Advantages: Simpler to use and understand Individual feature classes may be selected, rather than an entire connection Feature classes from multiple connections may be selected When a feature class is designated as containing spatial filter reference features, it is available in both filtered and unfiltered form

25 Map Display Rewrite  A major goal of the 6.0 release has been to redesign the display system in support of: –Critical workflow requirements Legend Styles Thematics Scalability – Platform flexibility for add-on development

26 Map Display – Legend Improvements Legend Display –Legend groups –Dockable legends –Drag-and-drop of multiple legend entries –Change display order of thematic entries –Titles and subtitles may be edited in-place –Cut / Copy / Paste –Ability to change the basic type of display (e.g. standard to thematic)

42 Data Maintenance Major theme of 6.0 has been to improve the workflows for data collection and editing –Construction Aids –Redesigned Insert Feature Command –Additional Enhancements

43 Data Maintenance – Construction Aids Construction Aids streamline collection by providing temporary placement tools during placement or editing without exiting the command.

44 Data Maintenance – Insert Feature  Simpler User Interface –Compact –Context-based placement modes –Short cut keys

45 Data Maintenance – Insert Feature Placement Modes  Rapid line placement –Two-point line –Consecutive two-point line  Place by rectangle  Place by rotated rectangle  Place by circle –Replaces the Insert Circle command of version 5.2

46 Data Maintenance – Insert Feature Placement Modes continued  Advanced arc placement –New Arc by Centre mode –Precision key-in of arcs

47 Data Maintenance – Other Enhancements  Improved Arc Handling –GeoMedia now uses a “GIS” approach in which the arcs are assumed to be circular in the X-Y plane  Edit Geometry –Circles now behave like circles when being edited Drag handles to increase or decrease the radius Precision key-in of radius –Advanced arc editing An arc may be modified by key-in or by drag Precision key-in of arc parameters –Interruption of handle selection

48 Data Maintenance – Other Enhancements  Move, Rotate, Spin commands –Commands remain active so that the user does not have to reselect the command to perform a similar operation on other features  Change Feature Class command –New option to change the feature class of the selected feature(s) without deleting the original feature(s) –Copies the values of the matching attribute fields

49 Data Maintenance – Other Enhancements  New Snaps –Tangent and Perpendicular Snap  Split Feature Command –Command will split area features by using existing features or geometries as new boundaries with a “one point selection”  Many other enhancements as well
