Sketch

With the sketch element, temporary geometries can be created. These sketches are not saved within a database and will be lost after restart of the application. Sketches can be printed out.

The following geometry types can be sketched:

  • Point

  • Line

  • Polygon

  • Rectangle

  • Circle

  • Text

Configuration

../../../_images/sketch_configuration1.png
  • Auto activate The element is activated automatically.

  • Deactivate on close Sketches are deactivated after closure of the element.

  • Title: Title of the element. This is referenced by the button which opens the element.

  • Target: ID of the map element, to which the sketch element refers.

  • Geometrytypes Lists all geometrytypes.

Draw geometries

Point drawing can be activated/deactivated via click on the button “point”. Points are set via a single click on the map.
