Visualization is the visual presentation of data to help users explore and understand the data.
Two common visualization tasks in GIS are:
- List features and their attributes.
- Show feature geometries on the map.
This topic discusses VertiGIS Studio Workflow methods to present feature data and show the features on the map.
This discussion is limited to methods for showing features from within a workflow. Your host application may support additional visualization techniques. Refer to the application's documentation for information.
VertiGIS Studio Workflow provides the following ways to show features:
Show Results: The Show Results activity displays feature data. If the features have geometries, the geometries are highlighted on the map. You can also use the Show Results activity to combine feature sets from a particular layer.
Add Graphics: The Add Graphics activity adds features to a graphics layer on the map. If the features have symbols, they show on the map.
Item Picker: You can use the Item Picker form element to display a list of features and attributes. The Item Picker optionally allows the user to select one or more features. If the features have geometries, the Item Picker highlights the geometries on the map.
