Navigating on the Map

Several tools allow you to navigate the map.

Looking for a place

You can search for a specific place in the map:

  1. Enter search terms. You can enter an address, a postal code, a city name, a place, etc. JMap NG uses the Mapbox Geocoding service to find the location. As you enter information, places with matching information are displayed.

  2. When you search for another location, the mark of the previously selected location disappears.

Searching features on the project

You can search for an feature in the project based on the value of one of its attributes.

  1. Enter the search terms. As you enter terms in a list, elements in the project layers whose attribute value matches the terms you enter are displayed.

  2. Click the list the element you want to find. The map centers on the element which is selected.

  3. Click the layer name to select all features in the layer whose attribute value matches the terms you enter. The map centers on them.

The attributes to be used for this type of search must be indexed.
